A Night Fit for a King

OREGON TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- It was a surprise fit for a king at a high school in Wayne County.

Alex Jachens, a Honesdale High School senior with special needs, was named prom king Saturday night.

Honesdale High School's principal tells Newswatch 16 Jachens' attitude made him the top vote-getter from his fellow students.

"Alex brings a lot of strengths to Honesdale High School and a lot of gifts that he's able to share with all of us, and really, it makes it all better," said Principal Chris Pietraszewski.

Jachens also shared a special dance with the prom queen.
