PROM TIME

 

My name is Amy Hayes and I teach special needs kids at Farmington High School. A few years ago, my co-teacher Kymbr Mordecki started taking our students to prom. She worked hard to get everything for prom donated so that our students could have this memorable experience at no cost to them. She has been able to get members of the community to donate dresses and tuxes, hair and makeup, dinner, flowers, transportation to and from, and most importantly, the tickets. As a result of the continued support of community members, our students get to experience something unforgettable that they might not otherwise be a part of due to the cost and time required for prom.

In years past, Kymbr has recruited members of the community to be our students' escorts. These included the Chief of Police (Chief Hebbe) and his officers, firefighters, and our District Superintendent (Dr. Schmidt). This year, she asked the Guardians of the Children, a motorcycle club dedicated to advocating for victims of child abuse. Their mission is to "recognize and educate the public on child abuse as well as to serve as advocates to provide strength and stability to families in crisis, and to be an answer to the prayers of an abused child or teen for courage, support, and protection." They graciously accepted and will be our students' escorts to prom this year! They will be escorting our bus from the salon (Adara Salon) to the prom venue on their motorcycles.
