Isn’t this just the most wonderful feel-good story to kick off the weekend? Girlfriends Destinee Gates and Becca Fernandez were awarded “Cutest Couple” in the yearbook of Calaveras High School in California. They’ve openly dated since Freshman year, and have been surprised at how most people and their peers in the normally conservative county have been accepting. Even Principal Ric Stitt beams as he describes the tolerance within his community.
If only other schools and administrators would take a lesson from this simple, but beautiful story of acceptance. Destinee and Becca plan to both attend Columbia College in Sonora in the fall. May they continue to find happiness.
Can we hear an “Aaaaaaaaaawww…”?
