Special needs student crowned prom king | Community Spirit
Lisa Jackoski of Lake George shared this YouTube video with us of her son Max being crowned prom king last weekend at Lake George High School.
We'll let Lisa tell the story...
My son Max, who has Down syndrome, was voted prom king last weekend by his classmates in Lake George. Many of his classmates approached us after the coronation and said they decided as a group that it would mean more to Max than any of them.
Their decision has now had a ripple effect. Parents of special needs kids everywhere are now saying "thank you" for giving them inspiration and many people in general have had their day brightened a bit by the photos and video. A nice feel-good story when we hear so much about bullying these days.
Congratulations to Max, Lake George's Class of 2013 Junior Prom King!
