A Night For Our Most Special To Shine – Second Chance Prom

Mena and Polk County were a part of something very special Saturday, February 9th when the Special Needs Prom was held at the CMA Iron Mountain facility.  Not just around the United States were these events being held, but all across the world people gathered to make a special evening for some very special people. CJ Liles, organizer of the local event said, “Last year I heard about this event on the radio; I felt this is something we could do for the special needs people of our area. It couldn’t have been done without all of the volunteers. We had over 300 people volunteer and over 150 special needs guests. This town and county is amazing.”

Dinner was full smoked chicken with all the fixings, formal photos were taken and a limo was on hand as well. All community safety personal were represented with Mena Police, Fire, EMS, National Guard, Mayor and County Judge in attendance.

When asked what she would say to anyone who did not attend the Second Chance Prom, Ms. Liles stated, “You missed a great party!”

CJ Liles and all of the staff who spearheaded the event would like to thank the following. Without their help the joy brought to those who attended would not have been possible.
