Teen With Autism Represents Class at Homecoming

BOULDER CITY, Nevada -- Thursday was a big day for Jordan Honey. The Boulder City High School freshman took the soccer field during a game for the first time since making the junior varsity team.
Following that, he climbed into the back of a convertible and rode in a parade from Boulder City High to the annual homecoming bonfire in a vacant lot next to the fire station, 1101 Elm St.
The 14-year-old autistic boy, who doctors said 10 years ago would be institutionalized by now, is a homecoming attendant, elected overwhelmingly to represent the freshman class in the parade, during halftime festivities at the football game Friday night and at the homecoming dance Saturday night. He will escort freshman homecoming princess Verli Doing.
