Seniors Travjuan Hunter and Semone Adkins made history in Orange County, Florida when they became the first two students with Down syndrome to be crowned homecoming king and queen. The two students were among 12 students who were vying for the coveted position. After competing in a talent contest they were elected by the West Orange High School student body.
The selection was kept top secret until Hunter and Adkins received their crowns in a coronation ceremony on the football field.
“I am so excited, I am so proud of my son,” said Janice Morgan, Bubba’s mom.
Morgan said Bubba and Semone have been life-long friends and sharing this honor is something they had never imagined.
“It was a dream come true, because I always knew that she was going to be something great in this world and this is just the beginning for us,” said Karen McNeil, Semone’s mom.
