Inclusive homecoming ceremony provides touching moment at Buhler High School

BUHLER, Kan. (Catch It Kansas) A touching moment during halftime of Buhler High School's Friday night football game against Augusta makes us Kansas Proud.

The school puts an emphasis on inclusion for its special education students, setting them up for success and friendships with regular education students who don't face the same obstacles, but see a lot they often do have in common.

Friday night, Colby Davis was crowned Homecoming King, honored by his classmates. The senior has cerebral palsy and is one of several students at the school who benefit from the Interpersonal Skills class, where he's able to spend time with classmates involved in sports and activities throughout the school.

"It feels good to actually do it and be a part of this," Davis said after his big win Friday night. "And I just can't believe this really happened. It's beyond words."

Davis' teacher, Beth O'Brien, was among the many at Friday's game happy to see the senior get the royal recognition.

"If a smile could light a city, his smile just lit the whole state of Kansas," O'Brien said.
