Crosstown proposal between junior, senior

By Kristin Gooch

Marching at the Crosstown Showdown game, she was prepared to go on the field; like any other game. Suddenly, unlike any other game, her name is announced to the crowd. She looks up to a bundle of people holding signs reading “Emma homecoming, #16?”

Emma Beebe, junior, was very excited about the proposal from Wylie High senior Zachary Violett.

“He’s so sweet,” she said. “He always does things like this.”

She returned the favor to her boyfriend of four months.

“I trashed his house with homecoming decorations, and hid the garter in his room,” Beebe said. “It was a sea of blue.”

The couple will be spotted at the homecoming dance.

“Wylie High did not have a dance. It was more of a get together,” Beebe said. “He plays football, and I march, so we will definitely be at the East dance.”

Fairytale proposal

Robert, Robert, where for art thou Robert?

By Kyleigh Anderson

Just like a scene out of Romeo and Juliet, Senior Robert Benners asked Kendall Howie, senior at Rockwall Heath High School, to homecoming outside of her window.

Benners proposed to Howie on Oct. 22 with an abundance of candles and a bouquet of flowers.

“I spelled hoco in candles in front of her house,” Benners said.

Benners threw a pebble at her window to get her to look outside.

“She always wanted me to throw a pebble at her window and be at the bottom waiting for her,” Benners said. “I took that idea and branched from it.”

Howie ran down the stair to Benners’ arms to give him “the biggest hug ever.”

“I could hear her from upstairs say ‘AWH,’” Benners said. “She was so loud.”

Benners says he didn’t do too much planning. He wanted to surprise her and he did just that.

“I was so excited and so surprised,” Howie said. “It made me extremely happy.”
