Montevallo High School’s students with multi-needs participated in a unique occasion.  Students were invited to the multi-needs Masquerade Ball held on Thursday, Feb. 21 at Sterling Castle in Shelby, Alabama.
Students dressed in formal attire.  Senior Korey Cunningham attended as volunteer.
“It was fun being able to interact with the special needs students,” Cunningham said.  “To share a special moment with them was awesome.”
Sophmore Jamiryka King enjoyed the ball, also.
“It was fun being able to interact with other students like me from different schools,” King said.  “It was really a blast!”
Special education teacher Nan Franks plays a large role in helping MHS students with special needs.  Her devotion to this group is a blessing.
“This was the first annual special needs masquerade ball,” Franks said.  “I feel like it will become a tradition because it was so successful.  Everyone involved had a great time and learned valuable lessons.”
