This year, we have organized a “Shining Stars’ Winter Formal” for special needs students in the Demopolis City School System. It is rewarding to be able to see growth and maturity in our special needs students as each school year passes. These students are the most appreciative people you will ever meet. They will teach you what it means to truly be thankful for what you have, how to have a positive attitude, and how to keep going- even when the task may seem impossible. The rest of the student body here at Demopolis High School shows compassion, care, and kindness to these special needs students because they make the experience at the high school delightful for all types of students.
