Valedictorian proposes to beau in speech

UPI News Service, 05/17/2010 

A New Jersey college's valedictorian finished her nostalgic speech about her time at the college by looking to the future with a marriage proposal.

Emily Hawley finished her valedictorian speech at Centenary College by asking her boyfriend of seven years, Josh Walker, to join her on stage for a surprise marriage proposal that garnered wild cheering from their more than 400 fellow graduates and the assembled crowd, the Daily Record of Parsippany, N.J., reported Monday.

Hawley said Walker, who immediately accepted, was "surprised" and her parents were "shocked."

"We had talked about marriage, and I had asked him if it was OK if I proposed," Hawley said.

Walker said he was overjoyed by the surprise proposal.

"It's been a big day," Walker said.
