Mariah Slick, a high school senior from Texas who was born with Down Syndrome, was crowed homecoming queen by her peers in a touching public ceremony.

A favorite among the student body of Azle High School in Azle, TX., Slick was one of four students nominated for homecoming queen. The senior relentlessly cheers for her classmates at sporting events, and brightens their day during school hours with her outgoing nature.

For these attributes, Slick was nominated for this year’s  homecoming queen, a move which shocked her mother.

“I never dreamed she would be nominated homecoming queen, especially since she has special needs,” Susan Slick said.

The dream continued Friday, when the popular 18-year-old took the homecoming tiara. Watch Mariah and her dad’s thrilled — and completely shocked — reaction to hearing her name read below.
