BPS Students Give Loretto Residents a Prom to Remember

We currently find ourselves in the middle of “prom season,” a weekend that holds special memories for a lot of us. However, a couple of caring students from the LaFayette Central School District’s Big Picture School (BPS) recently helped a different group of seniors create some special memories of their own.

From an idea conceived by BPS senior Hunter Luteran, the Loretto Senior Prom was born. Hunter has been an intern at Loretto since his sophomore year, and has come to consider many of its residents as “family.” He had the idea to bring all the best parts of prom directly to a group of residents who may not “get out” as often as they would like.

No prom would be complete without a few classic staples, and true to form, the Loretto Prom featured a red carpet and a live band. Of course, a huge part of prom experience is “looking the part” for the big dance. Enter BPS (and BOCES Cosmetology) student Carlee Clarke, who volunteered to help get the Loretto dance goers gussied up for the party!

It was a truly memorable experience for everyone involved, borne out out of spirit of generosity and kindness. Great job, Hunter and Carlee, and everyone who helped make the event one to remember!
