Crowned High School Queen

Senior With Down Syndrome Crowned High School Queen

Stories like this just warm my heart. It makes me so happy to know that there are communities that embrace differences and celebrates those differences, as like it is nothing uncommon......just what you would do if a girl like Kristin Pass was part of your Senior class and you had to choose the one girl who represents your spirit....your school.....your community.

The tag line says it all..............Kristin Pass Treats Peers like Royalty, friends and family say ~ so who better to be crowned the QUEEN, but the one who acts like a queen to all and for all.

Way to go Aledo High School !!!!!!!!!!

You are making a habit of making my day Keep it up This piece was beautiful. My Robert got home from the hospital yesterday. I went to visit him today he looks great. Of course I couldn't let him see me because he would drag me out the door to come to my house and he's not ready for that yet. Thanks again for the prayers.
Love you all Bernadette.
