CLYDE, Texas - Students at Clyde High School are especially excited about one candidate they nominated for homecoming queen.
Meisha Mitchell, 18, is just one of four candidates and is a special needs student.
"When the teacher called me and told me they nominated Meisha, that just blew me away to think that--nowadays, you know, where there's so much bullying--that the kids in Clyde don't do that. That's what touched my heart..to know that they love her as much as she loves them," Diana Mitchell, Meisha's mother, said.
Meisha's teachers even bought her a dress for the Friday homecoming football game; however, Meisha's mother had already taken her out to buy a dress.
Meisha said she hopes to win the title of homecoming queen.
The other homecoming queen candidates, Jessica Baird, Ashlee Sharp and Emily Wilson, said they are all honored to have been nominated along with Meisha.
"Everyone's just friends with Meisha, she's always in a good mood and giving people high-fives in the hallway and telling people 'hi'--she's cheerful to be around," Baird said.
"We all talk to Meisha, she'll say 'hi' to everybody and give everybody hugs and she's really sweet to everybody," Sharp said.
