School comes together for student with Down syndrome’s prom proposal

A student at Westlake High School in Westlake, Ohio, invited his girlfriend to prom with a special proposal, the second time the pair has made the news for their relationship.

Jacob Cox and his girlfriend, Holly Thomas, both have Down syndrome. Last fall, they were voted homecoming king and queen.

Cox’s friends got the whole school involved in the prom proposal, which was captured on video. Cheerleaders lined the hallway as Cox approached Thomas to give her a flower and pop the question.

The response? Yes!
