In the video, you can see Robinson, who was also the school’s homecoming king, walking towards the theater stage, as he’s handed flowers one-by-one – the song ‘you’ve got a friend in me’ playing in the background.

“I think it’s a statement of the kinds of kids we have here,” Mountain Heritage principal Kevin Huskins said. “The reality is these two have been friends since they were four years old. Just to see this moments happen was priceless.”
