What girl wouldn't be honored to be voted homecoming queen? Nyla Covington was surely thrilled that her classmates voted for her, but it turns out, such was not for her personal glory. You see her friend and classmate Brittany Walters' mother had, just hours earlier, lost her battle with cancer.
The senior gracefully accepted the honor but what came next was act of love and caring that will not be soon forgotten by those associated with Forrest County Agricultural High School.
Nyla, immediately upon receiving the tiara, walked over to her friend Brittany and placed it on her head.
It was an act of kindness and generosity and while it could not wipe away her friend's pain, it demonstrated her love.
