Special needs teen receives creative invitation to prom


A special needs student from Goshen High School received a special invitation to prom.

This past weekend four guys got together to ask a long-time friend to go to prom with them.

Alaina Witmer, 18, is a junior at Goshen High School.

Her special needs instructor gave her son the idea to ask Alaina to prom.

Eventually four of Alaina's childhood friends thought they would surprise her this weekend by asking her.

They held up cardboard signs, popping the question for this spring's prom. Alaina happily agreed and has already picked out her dress.

“It was actually pretty exciting and everybody starting crying, like all the parents,” says Goshen High junior Bryce Bender. “It was really exciting for all of us to ask her.”

Alaina will go to prom with the four guys and their dates.

Prom is May 17th at The Palais Royale.
