Some Doherty High students with disabilities got a chance to strut their stuff Friday afternoon during a fashion show at the school.

For many of the students, it was the first time they were in the spotlight. Some of them with nervous, others couldn't wait for their special moment.

"It was the best thing ever," said student Emily Kreider.

More than a dozen students from the school's life skills program took part in the fashion show. The organizer's goal is to boost self confidence.

"I worked with these kids for the past two years through the TAPS program and I really wanted to give back to them because they've given so much to me," said Chiara Wuorenmaa.

The ARC and Goodwill donated all the clothes. The Salon Professional Academy came to do hair and make-up and Quiznos and King Soopers donated lunch.
