Special needs students in Delano get a prom of their own

Developmentally delayed students go to prom

DELANO, Calif. - High school students in Delano with special needs got a prom all their own.

Four years ago, special education aide Erica Schoats had the idea to put a special prom together for her students after she saw  the general education students get excited about their senior prom. 

On Friday students with special needs from the Delano Joint Union High School District partied like any other teenager at their own prom at the Elks Lodge.

The girls got their hair, nails, and make-up done for free.

The guys got free haircuts.

Everyone enjoyed a free limo ride.
