Eagle Eye Promposal Contest: A Sour then Sweet Promposal

Brandon Kemp & Alexis Cowfer

Senior Brandon Kemp was set on asking his senior girlfriend, Alexis Cowfer to prom. Brandon wanted his promposal to be cute this year considering that their plans to attend prom last year didn’t really work out the best. He decided to use sour patch kids because one of their slogans say, Their Sour & Then Their Sweet! His plan was to work that into the sign he presented to Alexis. 

My sister helped me make the sign because my bubble letters are trash.”

— Senior Brandon Kemp

Brandon had Alexis come over to his house and when she arrived he approached her with a sign that read, “I’d be SOUR if you said no, but it would be SWEET if you went to PROM with me?” Brandon said, “My sister helped me make the sign because my bubble letters are trash.”

The high school sweethearts are hoping to make it to prom this year with no complications. They are planning to have a great time together and with their friends.
