You all don’t know us, but the students at Shippensburg High School made Saturday, May 3, the best day of our son’s life when Trent Boden was nominated as 2014 Prom King.
Our family would love to meet, acknowledge, and thank every individual involved in making this once-in-a-lifetime experience, typically for a select few, a reality for our special-needs son; but we understand there are way too many to do so personally.
Just know we are overwhelmed with great joy by your show of support and the unselfish actions of his fellow nominees. We are in awe and becoming quite speechless — the SASHS student body makes Greyhound-country proud, and we are so grateful to be a part of it.
The students at SASHS have exhibited a tremendous amount of character and integrity in accepting and including kids with disabilities, and your parents, family, and teachers should be extremely proud — Shippensburg High School is amazing and must be publicly recognized.
It is our hope that others who hurt us by their destructive words and actions will take a lesson from these kid’s positive choices, acceptance, and friendship. Bless you.
Lavon and Robert R. Boden II
