People all over the country are sharing in the excitement of a teenage girl who recently had the homecoming night of her dreams at a Fouke, Arkansas high school.
Eighteen-year-old Darcy Crabtree is a sweet, smiling teen with a kind disposition and plenty of school spirit--and she loves her school's Panthers football team. Last week, the football team returned the love by nominating her to the school's homecoming court. Then, the student body voted this special senior as their 2015 homecoming queen--a gesture which has deeply moved her family, and touched the hearts of anyone who hears her story.
That's because Darcy was born with cerebral palsy, and at one point was told she may never walk on her own. Thanks to a surgery on her legs when she was younger, she is able to walk--and will do so with her father and brothers in front of the Fouke community when she is crowned their queen.
"We may not ever get to see her get married, but I get to see her walk with her father and brothers," her emotional mother, Melissa, told KTBS (check out the video, below!).
At a time when school bullying, violence, and other negative headlines dominate the news, we're proud to pass along this story of kindness and acceptance among students. Congratulations, Darcy!
