Wilmot Union High School’s Student Council annually hosts the Spring Fling Prom for students with disabilities.
This year’s event had a surprise mode of transportation for Wilmot participants — a huge stretch limo they knew nothing about.
Tracy Carlisle, a Wilmot language arts teacher and the student council president, helped found the Spring Fling over five years ago. This year, Carlisle gave up birthday gifts and took donations to rent a limo to take the Wilmot students to the dance at the school, said Marcia Nolan, part of the Wilmot special education staff.
Here’s how the surprise unfolded: The students were brought to Fox River Park for pre-dance photos in a scenic setting. Then while they were posing, the limo rolled up.
Here’s video of the big moment:
