A special prom-posal at Lawrence North

A special prom-posal at Lawrence North

It used to be that going to the prom was a big deal.

Now, just asking someone to go to the big dance requires a special plan all its own.

"Prom-posals" can get pretty outrageous. 

But sometimes the message can mean even more. 

Case in point - Brianna Nave asking Dell to the Lawrence North prom. 

Dell is a friend of Brianna's brother and a freshman. He also happens to have a developmental disability.

The video of Brianna asking Dell to the prom has been watched thousands of times online, and for good reason.

"I was shocked. I didn't know it was coming," Dell said. "Then, I had butterflies and I was excited when I got home."

Brianna says she invited Dell because last year, she was asked to prom by someone on the football team who "prom-posed" and it meant a lot to her. She wanted to give someone else that same amazing feeling.

"His reaction was just great. I didn't think he was going to react the way he did," Breanna said. "I started tearing up and was trying to hold it all in."

Watch our video in the player above as we sit down with Brianna and Dell and hear about this special prom-posal.

Proud of both the kindness & inclusiveness shown by LT students. #BestDayEver
