Katie Shipley, a senior at South Ridge High School in Beaverton, Oregon, was crowned prom queen last weekend.
This normally isn't a big deal, but Shipley was born with a rare chromosome disorder that is also accompanied by dementia. She wasn't supposed to make it to her senior year, much less be prom queen, NBC affiliate KGW reported.
Shipley has been in special education throughout her life and is popular amongst fellow students. She had always dreamed of being on prom court, and her classmates at Southridge high decided to make that dream a reality.
