A woman from the theater put me in contact with Caleb Severance, a senior at St. Mary Central Catholic High School whopopped the question. The girl referenced on the marquee is Julia Edinger, a junior at the school. Severance logged a series of service hours to earn the opportunity to use the marquee earlier this month.
After a dinner at Chet and Matt’s, the pair took a walk downtown and he directed her toward the personalized marquee. “You only go to prom twice, so I wanted to do something big,” Caleb said. The heartfelt gesture was a big surprise, and very appreciated, Julia said.
And in case you were wondering — she said “yes,” of course. Their prom is May 10.
