Student With Autism Crowned Homecoming King
At Nathan Hale High School in West Allis
WEST ALLIS- Sam Menzia is the kind of kid who never let his autism become a barrier to relating to others kids.
Sam has serious autism.
But, it hasn't stopped him from becoming a wide receiver on Nathan Hale High School's football team.
He's also on the wrestling team.
He says he has a lot of friends because he always tells them never quit.
He also has an infectious smile and is full of energy.
It came as a no surprise to those who know him well that Sam would be voted on the Homecoming Court.
That alone would be a great story, of how Sam has been a role model and setting a fine example for fellow students.
On Friday, his classmates decided to set an example of their own and award him Homecoming King.
