The title of homecoming queen usually goes to the Regina Georges of the world, but one Texas high school has crowned the right girl. Kristen Pass, 18, who was born with Down syndrome, was named homecoming queen on Friday night during half-time at Aledo High School football stadium. Kristen was one of three chosen from the senior class to vie for the title. The fathers of the nominees traditionally escort them to the game, but Kristen's dad passed away two years ago, so her grandfather, David Campbell, led her onstage. "She didn't say much [when she was crowned], she was too busy smiling," he said. "I gave her a kiss on the cheek and a hug and she was kind of letting it soak in. It got real when we got to the sidelines. All her friends came over and she was giving high-fives to everyone." [ABC News]
