The top prom-posals

Sophomore Danielle Brochu was prom-posed to by senior Austin Welhouse on a horse. Brochu and Welhouse made The Red Ledger’s list of top prom-posals.

A while back a mixture of other people and my opinions collaborated to create the top ten ways to ask a girl to prom. Now, with prom being Saturday, we’ve come up with the most memorable asks of the prom season. These are in no particular order, and these are only the ones that I have heard of.

Juniors Julia Carder and Grant Jarvis have been in a relationship all year. Jarvis got a black picture frame and wrote “prom 2013?” on it. Inside was a picture of the two.

Seniors Taylor Johnson and Mark Turner have also been in a relationship, and Turner decided the sky was the limit to ask Taylor. At a night time bonfire with friends, they were letting off sky lanterns, and when it was their turn, an outline of the words “prom” were lit up in the lantern.

Sophomore Danielle Brochu was waiting for senior Austin Welhouse to come pick her up. Little did she know, he would be entering in style. When the door was knocked on, she came out to see Welhouse on a horse with a sign that said “Prom: yay, or neigh?” This asking was completed with horse-top pictures.

Junior Kenzie Karnes was at her car in the school parking lot when on campus police officer Mark Mitchell approached her and handed her a ticket. Instead of a fine, on it was written “Prom?” and signed by junior Sam Victor.

Junior Sky Chambers gave sophomore Merrimon Francis a piece of ice to break. In the frozen ice was a note that said “Now that we’ve broken the ice…prom?”

On her way home from the airport the last thing sophomore Meghan Riddle expected was a prom-posal. But she came home to signs that said “follow the roses.” Rose pedals led her all through her house and outside. Along the way were signs that said “Will you go to prom.” When she got outside there was a sign that said “with me” and junior Riley Bevan was standing next to it holding more roses.

A normal trip to the nail salon, so thought junior Courtney Duval. However, throughout the process of getting them done, she did not realize until the end that her boyfriend, sophomore Sam Tillinghast, had instructed the nail lady had written “prom” on her fingernails.

Junior Brooke Barfield answered the door to find senior Chris Ford in a UPS uniform with a special delivery. In the box was several pictures of the two put together, and the pictures spelled “prom.”

There were cute scavenger hunts, the posters, and so much more. If there were other asks that you feel deserve to be on the list, tell us in a comment below! All in all, this was a very entertaining time of year. Start brainstorming guys, because with homecoming next year, more creative ways to ask are expected!

Mike and Ikes, puppies, jeeps, One Tree Hill, and ice cream...lots and lots of ice cream; it’s Katie. Her life pretty much consists of these things with the addition of a few others, and that’s how most people know her. Alongside these 5 fantastic things, she is also recognized by her long brown curly hair and the unfortunate height of a 5th grader. Her love of her hometown, back-to-back NBA Champion basketball team, the Heat, gets her in trouble because of her surrounding Mav fans, yet she still wears that championship t-shirt to school every once in awhile. This will be her 6th year in Newspaper and she is SOOOO excited...there is a fully loaded snack cabinet with a bag full of Mike and Ikes in it after all. :)
