Senior With Autism Is Topped Homecoming King At His Excessive Faculty

The start of the 2021 school year also marks another homecoming, meaning it is time for students to cast their vote on who should be crowned King and Queen of the Homecoming.

For Wall High School, New Jersey, the choice was easy. In a black suit and royal blue tie, Senior Warren Wright smiled ear to ear as he accepted his new role as Homecoming King in his school’s homecoming game against Lenape.

He was truly speechless as he posed for pictures with homecoming queen Molly Houston while her classmates clapped and cheered him on.

When he was just two years old, the 17-year-old was diagnosed with a profound developmental disorder on the autism spectrum and had social issues with people and relationships. Wright’s mother Krissy told NJ.com that not only is her son accepted by his peers, but sees that they hugged him as a person, made her cry and left her speechless.

Krissy first learned her son was in the running to become King of the Homecoming when she received an email from the school earlier this month. At first she thought it was a mistake, but Wright’s case manager told her it was indeed true.

It started with his school’s wrestling team that nominated him first. Then his other classmates followed suit, trying to show Wright how much they all cared for him.

Wright quickly got to work making a video to support his nomination and show why students should vote for him. Sure it worked!

Now Wright can add the homecoming king to his list of accomplishments, including joining his school’s marching band, cross-country team, bowling team, jumping alley, and game club.
