Kurtis Tinius is East High School’s new prom king.

The 18-year-old senior, who has Down syndrome, won the title Saturday night, according to Susan Arensman, marketing and communications spokeswoman for the Wichita public schools.

He was among seven senior men selected to the school’s prom court on April 4.

Looking dapper in a suit and tie, Tinius won overwhelming support beforehand with a campaign video that featured him dancing to Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie.”
