A glimpse into a few of LQHS’ promposals this year.
Joseph Fisher & Kaitlyn Erwin
Joseph Fisher ‘18 asked Kaitlyn Erwin ‘18 with a sign that read, “You’re always trying to bust your brothers, so bust a mission and go to PROM with me.” “[I] then made me want to ask her even more, and I’m extremely happy I did,” Fisher commented.
Liam Dixon & Melissa Trujillo
Liam Dixon ‘19 asked Melissa Trujillo ‘20 to prom with a poster that read, “I may be signing my life to the Air Force, but can I sign my heart to you?” She then had to sign her name at the bottom to make it official. Gladly, Dixon and Trujillo will be attending prom together.
Asa Castillon & Jessie Rios
Asa Castillon ‘18 asked Jessie Rios ‘18 to prom right before her softball practice. Rios took off her blindfold and saw Castillon standing there with two cut-outs of softballs that read, “You strike me as the girl I’d like to take to prom.” “PROM?” was spelled out on the floor in softballs.
Joe Snodgrass & Gracie Davis
After the Instigators performed at the pep rally, Grace Davis ‘19 was asked to prom by her boyfriend, Joseph Snodgrass ‘19. “My fellow bandmates picked me up, put flowers and a sign in my hand saying ‘Grace, I’ve fallen for you... Prom?’” shared Snodgrass.
Kevin Ayala & Jasmine Fernandez
Kevin Ayala ‘18 went above and beyond to ask his girlfriend, Jasmine Fernandez ‘18 in a special way. “She’s a super artsy person and I wanted to reflect that,” he explained. Though it was a little bit broken, Ayala managed to repair it. The typewriter read, “Jasmine, you’re just my TYPE. Would you go to PROM with me?”
Daniel Mendez & Emilie Cabanyog
Daniel Mendez ‘18 promposed to his girlfriend, Emilie Cabanyog ‘19. He led Cabanyog to his backyard where there was a dinner set up for the both of them. He set up lights in the shape of a heart on the ground, while his posters read, “You’ve always had my heart. Prom?”
Lucio Sanchez & Dominek Zabalza
Dominek Zabalza ‘18 was asked to prom by her boyfriend of “two lovely months,” Lucio Sanchez ‘19. With the help of Sanchez’s parents, he surprised Zabalza with her favorite flowers and framed pictures of him spelling out “PROM.”
Tony Alvarez & Ilana Valdez
Tony Alvarez ‘18 asked his girlfriend Ilana Valdez ‘18 to prom during lunch. As Valdez made her way to the new building, she was handed three roses with cards that read, “Let’s make our way to prom.” The last poster also had two boxes for her to choose her options: “yes” or “yes.”
