High Point University’s Student Council for Exceptional Children partnered with the city of High Point’s Parks and Recreation Department to host the Valentine’s Day Dance for individuals with disabilities.
HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 12, 2020 – High Point University students had a lot of Valentines at this year’s Special Populations Valentine’s Day Dance hosted by HPU’s Student Council for Exceptional Children (SCEC) and the city of High Point’s Parks and Recreation Department.
“It’s always so much fun to see the friends you’ve made at the other dances,” said Rebecca Magod, chair of HPU’s SCEC committee for planning dances. “We enjoy celebrating these individuals and bringing the High Point community together through dancing, crafts and games.”
Christie Elliott has attended the Valentine’s Day, Halloween and Christmas Special Populations Dances every year. This year’s Valentine’s Day dance was extra special for Elliott.
“My favorite part about the dance is spending time with my boyfriend,” said Elliott. “I hope they keep this party going. High Point University is very special.”
HPU’s SCEC, which includes majors across HPU, is made up of students who share a common interest in promoting awareness and providing support for individuals with disabilities.
HPU’s SCEC plans to host a Halloween and Christmas dance in the fall.
