FEEL GOOD FRIDAYS: The homecoming queen gave away her crown to comfort a grieving family and set an example for us all

Friday, October 15th, 2021

TODAY’S STORY COMES FROM FORREST COUNTY AGRICULTURAL HIGH SCHOOL IN MISSISSIPPI, WHERE A HOMECOMING QUEEN SHOWED AN INCREDIBLE DISPLAY OF KINDNESS AND COMPASSION BY PASSING THE CROWN AND TITLE TO A FELLOW GRIEVING STUDENT. SENIOR NYLA COVINGTON WAS VOTED HOMECOMING QUEEN BY HER CLASS, BUT DECIDED TO GIVE THE AWARD TO BRITTANY WALTERS, WHOSE MOM HAD RECENTLY PASSED AWAY FROM CANCER. BRITTANY’S MOM A.J. WAS AN ADMINISTRATOR AT THE HIGH SCHOOL, KNOWN BY EVERYONE AS THE “SCHOOL MOM.” SO WHEN NYLA WAS NAMED HOMECOMING QUEEN, SHE IMMEDIATELY PASSED THE CROWN TO BRITTANY TO SHOW HER SUPPORT. “SHE’D RATHER HAVE HER MOM THAN A CROWN,” SAID NYLA. “BUT I WAS JUST LETTING HER KNOW THAT SHE WAS LOVED BY MANY AND ESPECIALLY ME.” WHAN AN AMAZING HEARTFELT ACT SHE’LL NEVER FORGET.
