Promposal (Noun): A way one person asks another to a formal dance called prom.
This year for the 2014 prom there were many amazing promposals. The guys and girls really took a stand this year and came up with some pretty clever ideas to ask that one special person to prom. Senior, Austin Kemp, asked senior, Cassidy Ponzar, to prom. “I took her up to the mountains in Boulder where there she found my sign that said “PROM?” on it and a bowl with two little gold fish,” said Kemp. He said Ponzar’s reaction was priceless because she was so excited. With her being so excited Kemp said the promposal got him also really excited for prom. Kemp said, “It took me almost the whole day to get everything ready and in place, then I had to get over my nerves and take Cassidy up to Boulder to ask her.” In the end, Kemp’s promposal was very successful, he got himself a date and is now more excited than ever for his senior prom.
Next we have junior, Barrett Ingvaldsen, who asked junior, Lexie Knutson. Ingvaldsen set up blue tape on his garage that spelled out “PROM?” Knutson loved what he had done for her and was very excited and all around happy, then he took Knutson to a romantic movie and dinner date. “I was really nervous because my original plan was to ask her while we were both in San Diego during spring break, but we never had time to see each other. I had to go to my plan B, which made me even more nervous because I didn’t know how it was going to turn out.” said Ingvaldsen. Trojan News then asked if Ingvaldsen was proud of his promposal. “I am very proud but, there is always room for improvement.”
Finally, junior, Brandon McDaniel, asked junior, Courtney McDonald. “I was really proud of my promposal because Courtney was in a bad mood after her soccer game because they lost and I cheered her up with flowers and multiple signs that had each letter of prom on it to spell out, “Court. P. R. O. M. ?.”" McDonald was very happy after she received the prompsal from McDaniel. Usually when asked to prom the girl gets really excited but Trojan News decided to ask McDaniel how excited he got after the promposal. He replied by saying “Yes, my promposal got me so excited for my first prom.”
Promposals are some of the best memories of prom. It’s one thing to be asked to homecoming but, it’s a totally different thing to receive a promposal from that special someone.
