Two Texas high-school students are having an unforgettable prom!

Adrian Alonzo, a McCamey high school quarterback, asked out Cesyli Prieto, a fellow student with Down syndrome.

Adrian has a lot in common with Luis Velasquez, who surprised his special needs friend Tiffany Gay with a prom invitation!

Though his “prom-posal” was a huge surprise, the two got an even bigger surprise during the ceremony.

Adrian collaborated with teachers Bridget Mitchell and Amy Acosta to come up with a special way to ask Cesyli to prom.

The result was something spectacular. Adrian filled several boxes with balloons. When Cesyli opened each box, a balloon floated out.

Eventually, the balloons would come together to spell “prom.” He adorned Cesyli with a tiara and she readily accepted.

“She knew right then when he said ‘prom,’ she said, ‘Oh, sure! Oh, OK!’ ” Mitchell told Today.

“She got super-excited. When it was all said and done, we got back to the classroom, and she refused to take off the tiara. She was dancing, being happy, and being silly. She said, ‘Cesyli’s going to the prom! Cesyli’s going to the prom!’”

But that wasn’t all… On the big day, the entire school did something pretty incredible for Cesyli.
