Florence teenager uses billboard to ask date to prom

FLORENCE, Miss. (WJTV) – One Florence High School student got creative when it came to asking out his date to the prom.

He took his proposal to new heights by posting a billboard of his bold question for everyone to see.

Bailey Mickle put it on a billboard where he asked his girlfriend Mia to prom.

The idea came to him while he was talking to his dad about whether or not they could put the question on a billboard.

Once they got the plans into motion, Bailey took Mia to see the finished billboard.

“I was thinking that when it wouldn’t air, wasn’t airing on time. It was about 6:01 p.m. and I hadn’t seen it. I was going “Oh Lord, what if they forgot”; A million things are running through my head and I didn’t know what to do and then finally when it aired, I was very reassured and I was happy,” Mickle said.

“Next thing I know, he taps me. I wasn’t even looking, and I look at the billboard and he tells me. I see that he’s asking me to prom and I’m like “Oh my gosh, yes!”, Like I was so surprised, ” Mia Riddell said.

Congrats to Bailey and Mia!

WJTV hopes you have a great time at prom!
