When Bullying Backfires

Kudos to the students at Poway High School for doing the right thing!

POWAY, Calif. -- 14-year-old Rachel Sampson has been voted homecoming princess at her high school in Poway in southern California. Rachel has Asperger's Syndrome; as her mother, Kathleen Sampson, says of her, "Rachel has a lot of friends, but she doesn't socialize outside of school, that's a little too difficult for her right now." As a cruel prank, some students put Rachel's name on the ballot for homecoming princess. But then, after other students learned about this, they rallied and voted for Rachel — and she won.
