Autistic teens Seth Knox and Kelsey Roeser lived their homecoming dream by becoming king and queen of the winter dance. Their Indiana school, Tri-West High School in Lizton, was the scene of the crowning, says People magazine on Feb. 14.

Happily, 18-year-old Kelsey took 90 percent of all the votes to win this victory. She told People that she cried tears of joy when she was called out for the honor.

Roesner said, "I was just amazed our student body could have done this out of the kindness of their hearts."

Meanwhile, 18-year-old Seth earned 100 percent of the votes for homecoming king. He was apparently a shoe-in, having been very popular throughout his years at his Indiana school when he would make his mates smile with his kind gestures no matter how good or bad a day these fellow scholars were having.

Not only were these autistic teens happy about the homecoming news, but so were their parents. Knox's mom worried that bullying would be his fate which apparently was not the case. Meanwhile, Roeser's mom was nearly in tears with how overwhelmed she felt regarding this big honor for her daughter.

And so, as a popular pair of autistic teens lived their homecoming dream, Seth Knox and Kelsey Roeser were named king and queen for the big event. Who could ask for anything more?
