Fredericksburg students crown a friend with Down syndrome

FREDERICKSBURG — After spending the weekend as royalty, Libby Klein resumed her friendly, upbeat and down-to-earth existence Monday at Fredericksburg High School.

But the euphoria persists from the affectionate gesture of classmates who elected her homecoming queen Friday during halftime of the Billies' 16-13 defeat of the Llano Yellow Jackets.

“The crown makes me feel perfect,” said Klein, a senior with Down syndrome. “I wanted the crown so badly because I didn't have one.”

Klein, 19, was the clear winner over four other would-be queens for the honorary title that this year carries special significance.
