Bellingham High School students crown homecoming king who inspires others
The Bellingham Herald
As his senior classmates chanted "Ben, Ben, Ben," 17-year-old Ben Hilleary strolled across the gym at Bellingham High School - with a gold and red crown on his head after being named homecoming king. Just before the Friday, Oct. 8, assembly in which he was honored, a smiling Ben fielded well wishes from students and staff, as he walked down a hallway and while he waited in his special education class. "Congratulations, Ben!" one girl said.

Ben Hilleary's mother, Sue Hutchings, is the office manager for the computer science department at WWU.
