Seniors Trinity Arrington and Emily Petty were both nominated to be homecoming queen at S&S High School, and, as we well know, there can only be one winner, right?
As per KXII, Trinity explained: “I didn’t think I was going to win. I told everyone that asked me if I wanted to win that I wanted Emily to win, so I told them to vote for her.”

When Trinity’s name was announced, she was shocked. It turned out, however, that she had an idea.
“I decided to give my crown to my sweet friend Emily because she’s always wanted to be a princess. So I decided she deserved it,” Trinity said.
Trinity and Emily have been friends for almost a year, having met through spending time during lunch in the special education classroom.
“I love her every day,” Emily said.
Trinity continued: “We got to be it together. I think that was the best part for me. She’s always been my queen, she deserved it. It made her happy.”
