Prom held in Milford for Special Olympics Unified Sports participants

New Haven

It is prom season, and on Wednesday, a very special prom happened at Foran High School in Milford.

This prom is for the Special Olympics Unified Sports participants and their student partners.

“It’s a big day, but I would just like to dance well, and I have my girlfriend here,” explained promgoer Kenny Szygiel.

“You know, a lot of them let loose. I chaperone the regular prom and this prom, and, while kids have fun at both, they certainly tend to dance a lot more at this one,” English teacher Rick Raucci said.

The event provides Unified Sports Athletes the opportunity to attend a prom and celebrate their athletic accomplishments for the year.
