Special needs students become prom king and queen at North Dakota school


(WDAY/CNN) — Prom season is here, and that means it’s time for gowns, corsages and crowns.

And it was an exceptionally special dance for two special needs teens at a Fargo, North Dakota high school. They were crowned prom king and queen of Davies High School, all while their proud parents watched on.

In a packed school gym, Garrett’s family, more than 50 of them, sat waiting for the crowning and grand march. Hannah’s parents, grandparents and fan club came, too.

This would be a big night, but the parents would soon find out just how meaningful it would be in minutes.

Hannah and Garrett, who have been in school together since elementary, prepared to enter the gym for the coronation. Their names were called as parents watched.

First the prom king at davies was crowned, Garrett, chosen by the students. Then, to top of the night, a new prom queen, Hannah.

What a night — the years have not been easy for these two kids, but Garrett got up the nerve to ask Hannah to prom, his country girl, as he says.

And for all those who made it happen, a memorable evening how one class act by a few hundred students changed the lives of two.
