There's a new 'Sheriff' at Thomas County Central High School and he's got only one thing on his mind.

"Freestyle and boogy-ing," says Special Needs Student Nicholas Casey.

The school hosted the third annual Special Needs dance with a "Hoe-Down" as this year's theme.

School Staff said special needs students from all over Southwest Georgia are invited to attend.

" We invite students from the surrounding areas, including Thomasville and they come join us for food, fun and dancing," TCCHS Special Needs Teacher Feraby Moye.

And while this dance is a first for special needs student Nicholas Casey others look forward to the event year after year.

Cowgirls, Sheriff's and even Indians came decked out to take part in this Country Western even Thomas County Central High's Principal Joe Sharp was dressed to part.

"It's a lot of work to put together this dance but when it's all together I'm worn out but this makes it worth it," said Event Coordinator Alma Smith.

Over 150 students from all over were bused in to put on their boogie shoes and I think I'm going to go and join them.

Thomas County Central High School's Principal said since special needs students don't attend prom he wanted to give them a dance of their own.
