MARTIN, Tenn. – The third-annual Special Needs Prom, hosted by the University of Tennessee at Martin’s Non-Traditional Student Association, will begin at 2 p.m., Nov. 17, in the UT Martin Boling University Center’s Duncan Ballroom. Special needs students and their families from the Weakley County and surrounding areas are invited to attend.
This unique event has been held each November since 2016 and allows students with sensory, mobility or other special needs to enjoy a high school prom in an accommodating environment. Styles on Broadway in Martin will again provide free hair and makeup services for attendees from noon-2 p.m. prior to the event.
A benefit concert featuring singer/songwriter Jourdan Rystrom was held Oct. 27 to raise money in support of the event.
