There was hardly a dry eye in the audience when, Hershel Bennett, director of the Exceptional Children program, took the podium at Monday night’s board of education meeting. “Tonight’s a big night for exceptional children. It’s like our Oscars,” Bennett said, smiling as he addressed the room. Many individuals and groups were honored during the night’s festivities which included big announcements and honors for the program as a whole. “Exceptional Children’s Week is not about exceptional children. It’s about incorporating all students to understand the value of exceptional children,” said Bennett.
