DUNWOODY, Ga. (WXIA) – At the Dunwoody High School homecoming Friday night, students showed true school spirit during halftime.
This year’s Dunwoody High School senior homecoming court — ten candidates for Homecoming Queen and ten candidates for King — beamed like the sun under the Friday night lights.
That number included two special needs students their fellow seniors nominated: Hannah Keen, who has Down’s syndrome, escorted by her big brother D.R.; and Gus Ashbury. He’s a student with autism, escorted by his mother, Mamie.
It was two weeks ago when the whole school — 1,200 DHS students — voted for Queen and King, choosing from among all 20 candidates on the ballots.
The results were announced at halftime. It turns out the voting was not even close.
The student body elected Hannah Keen and Gus Ashbury the school’s Homecoming Queen and King by a landslide.
“It’s big! It’s huge!” Hannah said. “I’m happy,” said Gus.
The most beautiful and handsome, the most popular, the most beloved and respected seniors – reigning now and forever. Hanna and Gus, Dunwoody High School Class of 2015.
Next, Hannah and Gus will reign supreme at the Homecoming dance Saturday night.
