It’s that time of year again, WPA proposals are starting to begin!

“I like having a dance where the girl asks the boy because it changes things up and the boys shouldn’t always have to do all the work,” Camryn Jeffords, so., said.

WPA is Kennedy’s school dance called ‘Women Pay All’ where the roles are reversed and the girl has to ask the guy.

“I asked Jack because my neighbor has downs syndrome and I’ve always worked with like kids with special needs and I decided I should give him the same opportunities we have,” Fellmer, fr., said.

Fellmer is glad she is giving him the opportunity to have fun and dance with other students at WPA.

“Since Jack’s favorite movie is the Sandlot my poster said- ‘Don’t kill me smalls by saying no… WPA’,” Fellmer, fr., said.
