As a senior at Meyers High School, her good friend Zach Rattigan was destined to make that dream come true.

“Every day at lunch she comes over, gives me hugs and says, ‘Hey, Zach, my brother,’ and I always see her in the hall and say, ‘Hey, Mal,’ and give her a hug,” he told WNEP-TV.

Hughes has down syndrome. She was delighted to attend prom with Zach.
