 A special needs student at Goshen High School is going to prom with not one, but four dates.

The four guys, all students at Goshen High School, went to Alaina Witmer's house on Saturday and held up signs asking her to go to prom with them and their dates, The Elkhart Truth's news partner WNDU reported.

“It was actually pretty exciting and everybody starting crying, like all the parents,” Bryce Bender, one of the boys who asked Witmer, told WNDU. “It was really exciting for all of us to ask her.”

Bender said Alaina has been their classmate since the third grade.

Witmer has already picked out a yellow dress to wear.

Goshen High School's prom is May 17 at the Palais Royale in South Bend.
