St. Patrick's senior asks girlfriend to prom on billboard

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - A new billboard in Gulfport shares a special message from a St. Patrick Catholic High School student--a request for a prom date.

"We've been dating for two years and I wanted her last prom to be special," said high school senior Cory Krivanec.

It took a month to plan the idea for his girlfriend, Gulfport High School senior Halee Register. Krivanec showed Register the billboard on Tuesday.

"It was quite difficult keeping it a secret," he admitted.

Register accepted Kirvanec's prom date request.

The billboard is located on Pass Road in Gulfport next to Mardi Gras Supplies.
