Texas Teen Gets Surprise Prom Date - Navy Fiance

CENTRAL, Texas- - An East Texas teenager's prom has led to an unexpected evening with the sailor she plans to marry this fall.

Savannah Anthony of Central thought 20-year-old Connor Burleson was out of state during her school prom Saturday night in Nacogdoches.

The couple met four years ago at church. Burleson joined the Navy in 2011 and is training in Ballston Spa, N.Y. Anthony and Burleson hadn't seen each other since January when he proposed.

Family and friends arranged for Burleson to surprise Anthony at the dance, where the 17-year-old senior was named prom queen.

Anthony said Monday that she had no idea her fiance would be at the prom and he made the whole night amazing. The two plan to marry Nov. 30.

Central is 120 miles northeast of Houston.
