The halls at Raider Ranch, a Lubbock retirement community, were filled with the sounds of recognizable carols less than two weeks before Christmas. The music was provided by more than a dozen students with autism who are enrolled in the Burkhart Center's Transition Academy.

After their performance, the students delivered nearly 100 handmade ornaments to the facility's residents.
