Students at a Taylorsville high school tricked Conrad into thinking he had been asked to the homecoming dance by a cheerleader but it ended up being untrue.
Conrad’s mother, Jennifer Conrad told Fox 13 in Salt Lake City that someone had egged their home and left a note saying, “I’m sorry for the mess. But how about I make it up to you by taking you to Homecoming?” After receiving the note, Conrad who has Autism and ADHD decided to give his answer to the girl who left the note, but she told him she already had a date and was sorry.
One of my students was recently the target of a bullying incident where some kids decided to make up a fake homecoming proposal. Well jokes on them because today Miss Greater Salt Lake came and asked HIM to homecoming. Bullying is lame and kindness always wins. pic.twitter.com/wgWBPAKEcC— Taylorsville Debate (@tvilledebate) September 18, 2018
When Miss Greater Salt Lake, Dexonna Talbot heard about the cruel prank that was done to Conrad, she decided to show up to Conrad’s history class with Starburst candy, a poster and asked him to the homecoming dance in front of the entire class.
Talbot told Fox 13, “I really wanted to make sure it was at the school. So that way those people who have been bullying could see something positive was coming from this and that they weren’t winning.”
Michael Conrad and Miss Greater Salt Lake attended the homecoming dance together on Saturday. Dexonna said " It was amazing!! Me and Micheal had an absolute blast."
