What a great community where the kids have been raised to see through the 'different' people and support this child.

Good Job.

It is good to hear stories like this for a change. We need more good news during these uncertain times.

It is so nice to know that there are young people out there who can see people for who they really are, not how they look, act, or dress. Kudos to the Aledo Bearkats!!!!

Stories like this gives one hope! It's nice to know that not all of the youth in this country are of the self centered " I, me, my " generation. Actions like this speak very well of the young men & women in Aledo! To be able to see the inner beauty of someone is truly admirable. Hats off!

Congratulations and we could use more kids like you all! There are lots of people who could learn a thing or two from these students. As cheesy as it sounds, you ALL deserve a crown.

All you ever here anymore is how bad things are, but when a story comes along like this one. It lets you know that there are still some great people left out there . Kudos to you Aledo School District for making a dream come true.

Benice & Rita X - SHUT UP! Stop hating because you didnt get crowned homecoming queen back in the day. You have to PASS classes BEFORE you can be nominated/crowned queen and judging by your spelling....well it speaks for itself.

Kristin Pass; beautiful child, congratulations! Aldeo High School - hats off to you and to your parents for raising some fine young children!

And the same thing to you...No Ebonics spoken here. Learn how to read and write in English.
