A Night to Remember: Meadville's Special Needs Prom
It's a special evening for some life skills and autistic students in Crawford County.
MEADVILLE, Pa. - It's a special evening for some life skills and autistic students in Crawford County.
The Wesbury United Methodist Retirement Community hosted the second ever, "Special Needs Prom."
Students from Meadville Middle and Senior High Schools enjoyed a night of dinner and dancing.
Terri White, Edinboro University professor, came up with the idea for a prom in 2016.
During the course of the school year, her Edinboro students travel to Meadville to participate in various activities with the students.
The Edinboro class does a final project at the end of the semester and once again, they choose this event.
Earlier this month, the Edinboro students hosted a banquet for the university's Wheel Chair Basketball team.
