In 2014, a group of unnamed students at Grand Prairie High School in Texas played a horrible joke on an innocent classmate. They told a senior named Lillian Skinner that she’d been nominated for homecoming court.
Lillian was ecstatic — but it was all just a cruel prank. She was never actually nominated.
But Lillian’s two longtime friends, Anahi Alvarez and Naomi Martinez, weren’t about to let their friend down. Both girls made a pact that if one of them won the crown, they would give it to Lillian.
In a touching turn of events, Anahi was named homecoming queen. And rather than accepting the crown for herself, she made good on her promise. In front of her entire school, she called Lillian to the center of the football field to give her the surprise of a lifetime.
The incredible show of friendship went viral for all the right reasons. When Ellen heard about these three amazing high school students, she wanted to reward them for their selfless act right there on her show.
