Pair with Down syndrome crowned homecoming king and queen, a first in Florida
1) It's really amazing how far the rights of people with disabilities of any sort have come in the last 100 years. They are not a race of people. They're not freaks. They're not immoral creations. 2) It's rare to hear stories about groups of teenagers doing positive things for people with disabilities. However, their actions are a testament to how far attitudes towards the disabled have come.wo students with Down syndrome were elected West Orange High School's homecoming king and queen this past weekend, WFTV reported. The Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida told WFTV that it was the first time two students with Down syndrome were elected homecoming king and queen in the state.
Semone Adkins was elected queen and Trazjuan "Bubba" Hunter was voted king of the court by their fellow students.
According to WFTV, the pair looked appropriately regal. Adkins wore a brown one-shoulder gown and Hunter rocked a black tuxedo complete with a puffy blue crown.
