High School Senior Class Crowns Two Students With Autism Homecoming King And Queen

Whether it's singing a song or giving out hugs, Seth Knox and Kelsey Roeser always know how to brighten their peers' days.

And the senior class at Tri-West High School in Lizton, Ind., found a way to repay them, according to FOX 59.

Knox and Roeser, who both have autism, were excited to be chosen as two of the 16 students on the homecoming court. But it didn't stop there.

During the halftime show at their school's homecoming basketball game on Feb. 7, the pair were crowned homecoming king and queen.

"For this group of kids to accept these special needs kids," Roeser's mom said to FOX59. "You can't put that into words, what that means as a parent."
