11-year-old special needs student upset by "mean-spirited" awards nomination

LAKE JACKSON - by Drew Karedes/KHOU 11 News and

The mother of an 11-year-old special needs student is demanding an apology over what she calls a mean-spirited awards ceremony.

Denis Harr is on the autism spectrum and receives special instruction at Rasco Middle School.

His mom says he is especially vulnerable to what happened at school.

Her son says he has been receiving some not so nice labels after a list of nominations created by the teachers in his 5th grade class.

"They said they had chosen me for most gullible and drama king," said Denis Harr. "I didn't know what they meant. I thought they meant something bad that would make fun of you or something like that."

Harr told his mother Carmel and she said she would've put a stop to it much sooner if parents had been told about the nominations.

The school told KHOU 11 News that the award categories were planned by a small group of teachers, but after the complaints the superintendent did away with the awards.

Carmel believes students and parents deserve a heartfelt apology.
