Grace and Tanner

Senior Grace Gensimore and TAHS Alumni Tanner Briggs have been dating for a while, and since Grace is still in high school, she knew she had to prompose.

By searching on Pinterest, Grace found the perfect and most meaningful way to ask him to her final prom. When he was pulling into her driveway, Grace stood holding a sign with pictures of them on it and the saying “My life isn’t perfect…but it does have perfect moments, especially when I’m with YOU! PROM?”

Grace Gensimore: “I was looking on Pinterest and found the best idea. I created a poster that said “My life isn’t perfect…but it does have a perfect moments, especially when I’m with you!
