When This Girl Was Crowned Homecoming Queen, She Had A Surprise For A Student With Down Syndrome

It’s a quintessential part of the high school experience – the day the students choose their Homecoming King and Queen. But when Katie Gassman heard her name called, she likely felt thrilled for another reason. And that’s because she had a surprise up her sleeve for Chelsea Sloan, a fellow nominee who has Down Syndrome.

According to Chelsea’s mom, Angie, her 18-year-old daughter was “ecstatic” to be voted onto Wayne Community Schools’ homecoming court. Angie wrote in a Facebook post, “Ever since she found out, she’s been […] telling everyone, including doctors, therapists, receptionists – seriously, everyone.”
