CNN PRODUCER NOTE Ed and Stephanie have been friends since their freshman year when they rode the bus together. Ed said Stephanie had asked him to go to dances in the past, but he had to say no because he either couldn't go or already had a date.
Ed said he's been planning to ask Stephanie to prom since September but he asked her parents for permission first.
Stephanie's mom, Joyce, says she's picked out her dress and can't wait for the big dance.
""She's very excited. Ed has been a great friend to her all through high school," she said.
