High schooler makes billboard prom proposal

High Schooler Makes Billboard Prom Proposal

An Indiana teen's prom proposal is turning heads at one of the busiest intersections in Evansville, Ind. Chase Brown rented a billboard to pose a question to his girlfriend if she would go to the prom with him.

'I knew from the beginning that she wanted something big,' Chae said. 'It was about the biggest thing I could think of besides renting a plane.'

Talk about a bold statement. Luckily the idea was big enough, since his girlfriend, Emily Arabia, said yes.

These Memorial High School sweethearts have been together for the past 6 months. From the sound of it, Brown's three months of planning for the prom proposal worked out in his favor. The two head to the dance in April.

A pleasant read...a break from the murders and politics and who wore what at an Oscar ...something that is always putting others down. This on the other hand was so very nice. Thank you for sharing this with us. To the couple....God bless you both and I hope that you have a fantastic time!

Glad she didn't say No. With a cheap whisper in his ear.

Maybe when he asks her to get married, he'll jump out of a plane without a parachute.

However he handles a marriage proposal, it will certainly be memorable for her. I hope they have long, happy lives together!

Or like he said, rent that plane to skywrite it? Sounds like mommy & daddy have the $$$! God help him if they do stay together, he will stay broke trying to out due the last stunt to win her approval & affection! SMH

A+ for effort, but she was already your girlfriend. If she was the girl that you could never get the balls to ask out because she was a hott cheerleader and you were a dorkey AV club member. Than if you did the billboard thing and she said yes I would say you were a genius. You could of just asked her and saved the money for a nice limo and hotel for after the prom, ya know what I mean!! Badda Bing!

Where does a boy in high school get the money to rent a billboard?

since she was already his girl friend, was it really that big of a gesture? was she going to go with someone else?

It is all about making her happy in a big way. She probably felt honored (and maybe a little embarrassed) to be asked to the prom in such a public way. I think it's a very nice, romantic story. It's certainly a lot more enjoyable than hearing ad-nauseum stories of the Kardasians trying to out-slut one another or Bieber pissing in some poor cleaning lady's mop bucket!
