Dunwoody High School takes pride in each and every one of its students. That includes those who are differently abled.

On October 11, the school near Atlanta announced its Homecoming King and Queen. Hannah Keen and Gus Ashbury, grinning broadly, accepted their new titles.

Both are special needs students, and reportedly, some of the most popular kids in school. The pair was elected from a class of 1,200.

Tom McFerrin, Dunwoody’s principal, told NBC the election reflects the school’s spirit.
