About 250 people attended This year’s annual special needs dance. Over 100 Hillcrest High School students help organize, decorate, set up dates, and arrange for the music during this special event. 70-75 of our students signed up as dates for our guests, and spend the night together at the dance having a great time. Bell Photography donated pictures for the event and Stakers Floral donated 25 boutonnieres and corsages. Many students were involved in making this a success. In particular Sephra Miller, Jessica Foster, and Avery Johnson spent hours making sure the night was special to all those that participated. Great job and much thanks to everyone involved.
