Prom night is special for many reasons but this year it is especially important to Hally, Rachael and Amy. They are three special needs students at Chatfield High school in Lakewood.
Sharon McManus the special education teacher from Jefferson at Chatfield high is happy to give the girls their dreams. Every girl deserves a prom and none more than these special girls.
Hally Burns had a problem when she was invited to the prom. She was asked by 2 boys and said yes to both to keep from hurting anyone’s feelings. She then called her friend Amy Brack from Castle Rock to go with them. All three girls are super excited about Saturday night.
The prom will be held at INVESCO Field. That was not all that the girls were in store for though. They all had free makeovers from Tanlgz and Co. Salon in Lakewood. Michelle Holderman who owns the Tanlgz and Co. salon said it was no big deal and that the girls enjoyed it.
They were treated like princesses by having their hair and nails done. They were pampered and spoiled just as they deserve to be.
When the girls met with their dates the boys were said to be speechless. McManus enjoyed doing this for her special needs students. They deserve to have a prom just like every other girl. McManus says, she sees their everyday struggles and wanted them to have a typical school girl experience in their prom.
“Just a small little difference in their lives for today,” McManus said.
