Teens with autism crowned prom king and queen

WENDELL, N.C. (WTVD) — Two high school seniors living with autism showed everyone what school spirit is really all about as they were crowned prom king and queen last week.

Corinth Holders High School seniors Brian Smith and Alexis Adams have overcome many of the challenges of living with autism over the years.

But they don’t let their disabilities slow them down.

The two seniors showed their endurance at Friday night’s prom when their classmates chose them to be prom king and queen.

“Two of the most positive individuals you will come in contact with, always happy, always smiling and it’s just infectious. They’re just radiant and the other students feed off of that,” explained Corinth Holders principal Chase Ferrell.

The two were overjoyed.

“I was happy. I was so happy, I couldn’t stop smiling,” said Alexis.

“Everybody, everybody voted for me,” said Brian. “I’m the king of 2014 … Not Brian no more, I’m the King.”
