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.

I don't mean to be a party-pooper, but what's with all of this over-the-top stuff nowadays? I either got asked directlly, through a friend, or via a note. Nobody rented limos -- at best, the parents were nice enough to lend the car for the evening. Now it's all about spray tans, party duds that cost hundreds of dollars, French manicures, etc........the more money spent, the better. Everyone is always vying for attention by trying to outdo everyone else.

I recently saw a heart-warming story about high school students who decided to forego the prom duds, dinner, limo, and bling. The money they would have spent was donated to charity. What an amazingly generous thing to do!

Well, this is LOVELY! I can remember when I went to high school in Houston, TX - I had become acquainted with a girl just a year YOUNGER than I. When I was a senior, and was going to my prom, I had asked my girl friend if SHE wanted to be my date. She said YES, and we had a WONDERFUL time. Then, a year later, while I was in college, and SHE had her senior prom, I was told by my mother that she was opting to take me out. I said YES, only because she and I were good friends for some time, and we had REMAINED that way for some more years.
