Mariah Slick Down Syndrome Homecoming Queen



Mariah Slick is the first Azle High School homecoming queen with Down syndrome.

The high school senior, according to KVUE, never expected that her classmates would crown her the queen of their homecoming.

She is known for her warm personality, but even her parents were surprised by the nomination. "I never dreamed she would be nominated homecoming queen, especially since she has special needs," her mother, Susan Slick, told CBS DFW.

The 18-year-old high school student is one of the school's biggest fans, and according to ABC, hardly misses a game. It seems everyone has something nice to say about her as well.

“She is well-liked by everybody,” her friend Jordan Arnold told CBS. “She is sweet -- a real sweetheart!”

Slick bested three other contestants to win the title during halftime of the school's homecoming game Friday night.

I put this in spiritual because it made me feel good. cheers

It sounds like she was the most deserving and the students chose well. The most encouraging thing about that for me...an entire group of Seniors, our next generation of adults, who do not have shallow minds but see what is truly special about a person.

Awesome story...thanks for sharing that, lmm. Clap Clap Clap Clap Clap

Heartwarming story. Another I heard a few yrs back: a teen had been having chemo treatments and lost his hair. When able to return to school he wore a cap until he entered homeroom to find all the boys in his class had shaved heads so he wouldn't feel different. This was back before shaving heads was a common thing among adolescents, 80's maybe? when hair was very important.
