Seniors crown Queen Jericho, King Damon

Jericho Desautel was crowned queen of the prom Friday night, with Damon Landeros crowned king. Alice "Wheatie" Desautel said Jericho's classmates had been "nothing but amazing," supporting the girl who has a rare chromosomal disorder that causes developmental delay.

"As her family, the people that love her, we find comfort that since day one, her classmates have loved her, cared for her, watch out for her, acknowledge her as their peer, and treat her like she's a part of THEM," Desautel wrote on her Facebook.

The evening meant the world to Jericho, who "for one night ... was just like her favorite characters from her favorite movies, the center of attention, the QUEEN," her mother said. "If that doesn't speak volumes of the character and heart of our student body, I don't know what does."

Jericho's Aunt Conita Desautel-Sampson said the seniors had made a pact at the beginning of the school year to vote in the two for the prom royalty.
