Building a Culture of Life, One High School at a Time



From the Washington Post:

Kevin Schombert, a student with Down syndrome, was crowned homecoming king this weekend atUrbana High School in Frederick County.

Schombert is a manager for the school’s basketball team and a huge sports fan.

“Kevin lives, breathes and bleeds Urbana Hawk Blue. Plus, he has a contagious smile!,” said senior Caitie Cyr, on a facebook pageshe created earlier this fall to rally support for his nomination.

“Let our legacy be more than championships, let’s do something that will make us all feel good. NOMINATE KEVIN SCHOMBERT HOMECOMING KING 2011!!!”

Caitie’s mother, Jennelle Cyr, was at the game when Kevin’s name was announced. “By the time his name was read, the entire home side of the stadium was chanting his name.”

And you must remember this.
