A lot of girls dream of becoming a homecoming queen, but this young lady proves that she’s more than just the queen’s title.
Zebony Davis is a senior from Turner County High School, Georgia. She had decided that if she won the crown, she would ask her classmate and friend, Faith Dobbs who suffers from Down syndrome to escort her to the ceremony.
“Faith is the only senior in the class and she wasn’t being included in anything,” said Davis to WALB News 10. She added that Hobbs does not have to miss out anything because of her condition.
Davis was eventually voted as the homecoming queen, but her reaction to receiving the crown was totally unexpected and stunned everyone.
“Give it to Faith,” said Davis.

“And then I went and took Faith’s hand and gave her the crown because that was just the right thing to do. And she deserved it you know,” told Davis.
That amazing moment was captured on camera and shared on Facebook by Deborah Sipes Priest.
“Zebony realized that building someone else up was more important. My heart is full tonight. Watching a smart, genuine, and precious girl, pass on her honor to make someone else feel loved. Zebony Davis, I am looking forward to seeing how God blesses you. You will go far in life.”
Not only that, but this sweet homecoming queen also helped Dobbs takes off her shoes when she said her footwear was hurting her. With this shining example of being humble and compassionate, Davis shows that she is indeed a queen at heart.
