Photo detail

Katie Stinson of Kingdom City and her date Joey Garrard smile for a photo during a prom sponsored by the organization, Celebrating Abilities Together (CAT), at the John C. Harris Community Center. CAT organizes dances at the community center once a month for people of all ages with developmental (physical or mental) disabilities. The dances allow parents and caregivers to network while allowing those with disabilities a chance to feel comfortable and welcomed in a social setting. Stinson, 22, was prom queen of North Callaway High School and graduated from there in 2010. When Garrard was a high schooler, his school did not sponsor a prom, so Friday’s dance was his first time attending a prom.

A reason to dance

What happens on the last Friday of the month in the John C. Harris Community Center has been a 16-year dream for mother Janice Craighead.
