A Buncombe County teen got the surprise of her life Friday night.
North Buncombe senior Caroline Posey was crowned homecoming queen.
The student body has been rallying around Caroline the whole week, the school says they've never seen anything quite like it before.
Caroline Posey never imagined she'd be kicking off North Buncombe's homecoming parade, taking pictures with her homecoming date, then taking home the crown.
Winning homecoming queen is a dream come true, but things haven't always been this glamorous for the 18 year old. She is a cancer survivor and has Down Syndrome.
Caroline Posey, homecoming queen, "I'm really excited!"
Jeannie Graeme, North Buncombe High School, "a lot of the senior girls really said Caroline entered school with us, and this is such a wonderful thing for her."
