Congratulations to Dunwoody High School
Homecoming Queen & King
Hannah Keen and Gus Ashbury

I love this picture of Hannah, Gus, and DHS Principal McFerrin. Photo is courtesy of DCSD Athletics.

It is these type of moments that reinforce my belief, and insistence, that the "education" of my children go beyond books, homework and tests. To the students and faculty of Dunwoody High School - Well Done!

Jon Shirek of 11 Alive also has a great story/video on the selection of Gus and Hannah.

DUNWOODY, Ga. (WXIA) – At the Dunwoody High School homecoming Friday night, students showed true school spirit during halftime.
This year's Dunwoody High School senior homecoming court -- ten candidates for Homecoming Queen and ten candidates for King -- beamed like the sun under the Friday night lights.
That number included two special needs students their fellow seniors nominated: Hannah Keen, who has Down's syndrome, escorted by her big brother D.R.; and Gus Ashbury. He's a student with autism, escorted by his mother, Mamie.
