Penn State Student Surprised With Virtual Grad Party Proposal

Although today’s a special day for thousands of Penn Staters, one soon-to-be graduate has an extra reason to celebrate.

Penn State senior Kelsey Martinez was celebrating her graduation from the university earlier this week when her now-fiancée decided to take the party to the next level. However, instead of popping the champagne, he popped the question.

“Will you take my great-grandma’s ring and make me your husband?” he asked before celebrating with his soon-to-be wife.

Naturally, she said yes.

Martinez celebrated alongside her three kids before hopping on a Zoom call with 30 members of her family to tell them the good news. She’ll graduate from Penn State’s World Campus with a bachelor’s degree in marketing.

Her surprise grad party was complete with an assortment of blue and white balloons, Penn State decorations, and a rendition of the Blue Band’s iconic “Hail To The Lion” to provide the perfect celebration ambiance.

Congratulations, Kelsey!
