When Brianna Dierks won the title of Prom Queen at Lincoln Southeast High School, she was happy, honored and humbled. Then she saw Amanda, a fellow student also up for the honor.
“She was just really sad, she wanted to try it on and I saw how happy it made her so I just told her to keep it,” Dierks said.
“It was definitely an honor for me but I could tell that it meant more to her than me at that moment. I think it is humbling. I am happy that I could make her feel better. I am just so grateful for the things I have.”
And a few days later, back at school, Brianna and Amanda saw each other in the hallway and gave each other another hug, with Amanda proudly boasting her smile and her crown.
