Students at Houston’s Carnegie Vanguard High School knew their senior prom was coming up soon. But before dealing with that, they all wanted to do something very special for Kennedy Brown, a 15-year-old freshman who had been suffering from an inoperable brain cancer for two years.
It forced her to stop attending school, but her many, many friends wanted to give her an amazing day in April of 2014 at the school’s outdoor amphitheater. It was attended by 600 classmates. The Houston Rockets basketball team sent its mascot, Clutch, to surprise Kennedy, a big fan of the team, with a t-shirt and gifts from star player Dwight Howard.
Kennedy was then escorted to the Fine Arts building and serenaded. She was asked to the prom and then was actually crowned as the prom queen. After that, everyone had fun dancing. The big day was capped off with a special graduation ceremony for Kennedy, where she was wheeled onto the stage and given her diploma. It was a wonderful time for the young woman filled with so many great memories for her and her parents.
Sadly, Kennedy passed away three months later. But all of her classmates can stand tall for making the remaining days of a classmate beautiful ones.
