Student with Down syndrome crowned West Genesee High School Homecoming King
West Genesee (WSYR-TV) – The focus was on more than just football at West Genesee High School as they announced their Homecoming King and Queen.
It was an especially memorable night for 19-year-old Andrew Bowman, who was announced as homecoming king during the school’s game against Corcoran Friday evening.
Andrew has Down syndrome, but that does not stop him from competing on the varsity swim team, singing in the chorus, and playing percussion in the band.
He said that winning “feels good” and the whole experience was “awesome.” Andrew also said he likes to have fun with his friends and classmates.
Maria DeLany was named the Homecoming Queen.
