Finally some good news coming out of Florida

Black Students With Down Syndrome Crowned Homecoming King And Queen

Via The Grio reports:

Great news was delivered to two students last week who made history as the first-ever seniors with Down syndrome to be crowned homecoming king and queen in Florida.

The night marked a momentous occasion for Travjuan Hunter and Semone Adkins, who celebrated with their families after they were announced winners during Friday night’s homecoming football game at West Orange High school in Orange County, Fl.

According to WKMG, Hunter and Adkins were among 12 other students up for the honor and the winning candidates were announced based on the number of votes submitted by the school’s student body.

The results were kept hidden until the coronation ceremony on the school’s football field where they were later revealed and dubbed Hunter and Adkins as homecoming royalty. The crowd cheered in support.

The two students have reportedly been friends for many years — and their parents were overwhelmed by the news and glad they were able to share the honor together.

Adkin’s mother, Karen McNeil told WKMG: “It was a dream come true, because I always knew that she was going to be something great in this world and this is just the beginning for us.”

You have to be most proud of the students in that school who used this platform to make two exceptional students feel special.
