Down Syndrom homecoming queen-KGUNvidIn Tucson, Arizona, the idea is spreading to elect special teens into the Homecoming Courts at school dances.

Mountain View High School followed in the footsteps of Canyon Del Oro High School which voted for a senior named Kevin for homecoming king.

In the report below, Lani was only nominated, but on Saturday, Mountain View students watched as Lani Fuentes-Cordova was selected as the Homecoming Queen for 2013.

Lani’s mom says, “I couldn’t be more grateful for this…I’m gonna get emotional…for having the other students here being so accepting.”
