Allison Hunt, a social studies teacher at Kentucky’s Manual High School, was expecting an ordinary fire drill Friday morning. However, as the Louisville teacher escorted her students out of the building, she learned it was going to be anything but. Hunt exited the building to find her boyfriend of two years, Louisville Fire Capt. Tom Cecil, pulling up to the school. Soon after the firefighter arrived, he surprised Hunt by getting down on one knee and asking her to marry him.
… Though the pair had discussed marriage before, the fire drill was not planned around Cecil’s proposal. He switched shifts with a guy so that he could arrive at the school during the planned drill.
