(PCM) This is definitely a story that tugs at your heartstrings and proves that even with all the headlines about bullying and selfishness that takes place in high schools there are still those out there that are willing to do a good deed and care about others.
The junior class at Riverton High School in Utah, crowned sixteen year old Kendra Muller as their 2014 prom queen, however they never would have guessed that three days later Muller would offer up her crown and sash, a completely selfless act, to a special needs student who was voted first runner-up.
Muller, went into a classroom and handed over the sparkly tiara, sash, and title to Amanda Belnap in front of her fellow students and teachers saying “I thought Amanda really deserves this honor”. The school principal claims “It was one of the neatest things I could ever imagine”.
Prior to the prom, neither Kendra nor Amanda had ever interacted. Kendra is well-known and well-loved by her peers and also happens to be in a wheelchair, after she was paralyzed in an accident that occurred three years ago. She is shocked that her good deed for a fellow student is garnering all the attention that it has thus far.
Amanda was thrilled by Kendra gesture and has been sporting her tiara and sash with a huge grin on her face. It was a truly touching act of kindness on the part of Kendra and definitely helps to restore some faith in humanity, when at times it can seem that all we are ever out to do is knock one another down.
