Two high school students with special needs were crowned homecoming king and queen by their fellow students at Islip High School on Long Island.
Irish American Delaney Conlon, who has Down Syndrome, and Robbie Phillips, who has autism, have been friends since kindergarten and both hold jobs at Applebee’s.
The couple won the vote for king and queen by a landslide, reports The New York Post.
“I was surprised and happy when I won,” said 17-year-old Phillips. “Yes, I did vote for myself!”
The newly-crowned king and queen danced to Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.”
