    A special prom date


    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.

Ed rode the bus with Steph his freshman and sophomore years and they have been friendly throughout high school. Steph has had a "crush" on Ed since they met. Every year she has asked Ed to the homecoming dance. He has laughed and did not think much of it. As he has gotten older he has seen the value of having all kinds of friends and he decided that this year, he would be the one to do the asking. So with permission from her parents and the school, Ed decided to ask Stephanie to the Senior Prom. The video is attached. Best Buddies is donating a limo for the event. Kids have re-tweeted, liked and otherwise spread the video all over local social media. twitter pic.twitter.com/K77UVVzme3 Ed was just being Ed. I am very proud of my so
