Ready to pop the prom question? Better be clever
Corbin Hildreth uses a sign for an optometrist so his girlfriend can see his promposal. The sign has been generating conversation since it was made Monday morning.
Brandon Steg has made the drive from Warren County High School to downtown McMinnville countless times, but Monday afternoon may have been the trip with the most anxiety.That’s because he wasn’t sure how girlfriend Eden Fryar would react to a special message he had displayed on the Park Theater marquee asking her to the prom.“I was nervous for sure,” admitted Brandon. “That drive from school felt like it lasted forever.”His apprehension didn’t escape his girlfriend.“He was acting so weird, I knew something was up, I just didn’t expect he would do something so dramatic,” said Eden, who immediately noticed the marquee message and said yes to his prom date request.Brandon said he thought of the idea about a month ago, but had to wait until Monday because it was the first day the Park Theater marquee was available. He said he and Eden have been dating about a year and both are WCHS seniors.Corbin Hildreth was thinking up a similar promposal for his girlfriend, Madeline Haston.
