A very special moment at a Noble County homecoming ceremony this past weekend as the new Homecoming Queen passed the crown to a classmate.

Instead of votes, the candidates unwrap roses to determine who gets the crown.

When Laken Figel got the winning red rose, she decided to give it to Jenna Porter.

Porter and Figel have been best friends since third grade. Porter also has Down syndrome.

Porter said everyone told her she looked beautiful in her crown and the weekend was the best weekend ever.
