Her principal says she was proud when Cruz was crowned queen because it shows the school creates a safe environment for all students, including LGBTQ students.
"I was extremely proud. I can't say I was surprised. Every single student should be accepted for who they are," Principal Maribel Gavin said. "They're all wonderful human beings that are here to learn."
Cruz is not only homecoming queen but she's also on the principal's honor roll and is involved in several school clubs.
