NEWTON, Kan. – A high school student in Kansas has gone viral after asking his best friend’s younger sister, who has Down syndrome, to prom.

Shaedon Wedel, 18, that he had been planning the promposal since the beginning of the year, CBS News reports. He wanted to make 15-year-old Carlie Wittman feel special.

This weekend, Wedel did just that. He designed a custom t-shirt that had the Doritos logo on it and read, “I know I’m NACHO typical Dorito but… I’m goingt to be CHEESY and ask: Will you go to prom with me?”

Video shows Carlie excitedly jumping up and down at the sweet surprise. And of course, her answer was yes.
