Beloved Brame Student Crowned Queen

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. - Middle school can be a tough time for girls, especially if you dare to stand out.

But one such eighth grader does, and the rest of Brame Middle School loves her for it.

News Channel 5's Kathleen Witte went to the homecoming game last night to hear more from a very special homecoming queen.

Her name is Mikadriah Busch, but her friends call her Nae Nae. And those are the friends that voted Nae Nae homecoming queen of Brame Middle School.

And Nae Nae sums up how she feels about her new title in just one word.

"Good!" says Mikadriah "Nae Nae" Busch, the newly crowned Brame queen.

Nae Nae was born with Down Syndrome, but parents and teachers say, that's never stopped her from being the friendliest girl in the room.

"Nae Nae is easygoing," says Shalonda, Nae Nae's mom. "A very lovable person. She gets along with anybody. Very passionate. She talks to everybody. Very caring. So, that's easy, to fall in love with Nae Nae. Period."

Brame principal Wally Fall says it's no surprise Nae Nae was the favorite of the homecoming court.

"She's a very special girl as you can tell," Principal Fall says. "Very popular girl. Everybody loves her. Teachers, students."

Principal Fall says he's proud of his middle schoolers for recognizing Nae Nae's kind heart and spirit.

"The student body wanted Nae Nae as their queen," says Principal Fall. "So that tells you what kind of school we've got. The student body. We've got some really sweet people."

Nae Nae's mom Shalonda says her daughter has been through a lot, but it was all worth it to see that look on Queen Nae Nae's face.

"I was very excited," Shalonda Busch says. "Did a lot of hard work. So I was glad. And this is something she'll never forget."

Nae Nae will be crowned again Friday night at the Brame homecoming dance.
