Prom is a rite of passage for most high school students. But for those with special needs, prom is rarely a reality.
But Waukegan high school principal Charmaine Harris, had the idea for a special prom. Principal Harris does her best to make sure her kids always feel like they’re just like everyone else.
There’s a DJ playing the latest tunes, plenty of food, decorations and disco lights.
And young people doing what young people do: having a blast, with lots and lots of dancing.
And it was principal Harris, with the help of others who made this night possible.
Dr. Charmaine Harris, she’s one of Chicago’s Very Own.
