Homecoming queen brings tears to fans

UPSHUR COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Union Grove High School was filled with excitement this evening. Not only was it Friday night football, but it was the eagerly awaited homecoming game.

There were dresses, motorcycles and even skydivers, but many would agree it was something else that made their evening so special.

Kayla Sexton is a 21-years-old special needs senior at Union Grove. A group of her classmates got together and made a Facebook page, encouraging classmates to vote for her as Homecoming Queen.

Last week,  Kayla was nominated as Duchess of the court and tonight, eyes filled with tears when Kayla was announced homecoming queen.

"Yeah everybody cried just for being nominated," says Robin Sexton, Kayla's mom.

When Kayla won queen, Robin says she cried even more. Kayla's family wants to thank everyone who helped make Kayla's day so special.
