CORNING, Ark. -- A high school student in Arkansas gets asked to prom in a very special way, and now it's gone viral.

Autumn Pollard, 19, has Noonan Syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects her growth and her heart.

She needs a wheel chair to get around. But, she is known for being a good dancer ... which is why she didn't think anything of it when she was asked to dance with the mascot during a pep rally at Corning High School.

She turns around and sees a sign that read "prom", with a question mark.  It pointed to Cope Robinson, a star football player who wants to go to the prom with her.  She cried with excitement, then accepted his invitation.

Pollard and Robinson go to the same church.  He says it's nice to make someone else so happy.
