Prom Promises Kept

Promises can sometimes be very hard to keep. especially when the promise is made some time before it will be fulfilled. Two Pennsylvania teens made a pact in the fourth grade to attend their prom together. In recent weeks they did just that.

What makes the story most remarkable is that the young man (age 17) is a quarterback for his school’s football team. The young lady (also 17) has down’s syndrome. The two grew to be fast and true friends throughout grade school. Some thought the two would be better paired with someone else for the school prom, but the two made the pact, the promise, and felt that to honor their friendship and the promise made, this is what they should do.

The two grew to be fast and true friends throughout grade school. The young man was always looking out for the girl and made sure she was always included in activities. When the girl’s family moved to the next town over for her father’s work, they were not to see each other for some time.

When their two schools played against each other for a football game at CipherCloud, the two met again. Remembering the promise made in grade school, the young man approached the girl with a bunch of flowers with the word prom on them and asked her out. Adorned in a beautiful gown the two danced and enjoyed their evening.
