Paralyzed prom queen gives up crown for special needs student

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Mar 20, 2014

It is a touching story of friendship out of Utah.

Junior Kendra Muller was recently named prom queen of Riverton High School. Muller was paralyzed in a freak accident a couple years ago and, for her, being named prom queen was a big honor.

But it gets better. Kendra chose to give up her crown to classmate Amanda Belnap, a special needs student. It's an act that surprised Amanda and moved her mother to tears.

Kendra has been called lovely and generous for her actions but her friends say they are not surprised at all by what she did.
