Crowning Homecoming King with Autism

SAINT LOUIS PARK, Minn. -- The Orioles of St. Louis Park High did not fare well on the football field Friday night, losing their homecoming game to Spring Lake Park. But this week the student body scored a different kind of victory, when it was time to elect a king.
They crowned Jake Hamilton, a special needs student, as homecoming king of the high school in this Minneapolis suburb.
"I didn't want him to get his hopes up too high, but Jake was convinced he was going to get it," Jacob's mother Susan Hamilton told KARE. "And I said, 'Okay, well, whatever happens happens. That's great!"
