Eagle Eye Promposal Contest: When You Wish Upon a Star

McKenzie and Brent

Senior McKenzie Johnson has been good friends with sophomore Brent McNeel for a while and when they are together they have a lot of fun; Brent knew asking McKenzie would lead to another fun memory and time.

By using her love for Disney and his singing talent, Brent decided to combine the two. Going to her house and having his older sister Brooke call her downstairs, McKenzie was greeted with a song playing, Brent singing, and a sign saying “Make my WISH come true…May I go to PROM with you?”
