    Couple 1st homecoming king, queen with Down syndrome to win title in Fla.

    Yay! Good things do happen in Florida! What a wonderful story!

    "The two were going all out, wearing a gorgeous gown and spiffy tuxedo as they prepared for the announcement. Students and teachers at the school said Adkins and Hunter are popular among their peers, and winning the titles of homecoming king and queen makes the school proud.

    "It's breathtaking to watch," said teacher Jim Mattingly. "They have come a long way. I couldn't be more proud of our school and our staff."

    I'm so proud of the school and happy for the kids! That is my hometown. I was in the last class that graduated before my HS was consolidated into WO High.
