NATALIA, Texas – Luis Velasquez is a Texas high school student and he created arguably the sweetest promposal ever. For those unfamiliar with the term, a “promposal” is when students ask each other to prom, most of the time in elaborate ways.
It was the thoughtfulness behind the way he asked that will pull at your heartstrings.
Tiffany is a special-needs student at the high school. Luis decided to ask Tiffany to prom and went as far as to ask her grandparents for permission. He even got the school principal to help out.
Luis’ mom Jessica said Tiffany has been sweet to Luis for a long time. She’s baked cookies for Luis on holidays and they’ve been friends since 7th grade.
During a practice fire drill, Luis had students line a sidewalk with a large sign spelling out “P-R-O-M?” for Tiffany. He also had roses in her favorite colors (pink and blue) and her favorite song play: Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are.”
If that’s not kind enough, Luis comforted a visibly overwhelmed Tiffany as he led her down the sidewalk.
Watch the video above to see Luis’ grand gesture for Tiffany.
Luis’ mom said she, her husband, and Tiffany’s grandparents are working to make sure prom night is one Tiffany will always remember.
“He came to me and said, ‘Mom, I want to ask Tiffany to prom because she’s a good person and she deserves it,” Luis’ mom said.
Since the video was posted, Jessica said people have been reaching out with offers to help make the day great.
