Coral Springs resident and LPGA teen sensation Lexi Thompson has made her choice who her prom date will be.
Back in April, Thompson posted a You Tube video inviting young servicemen between the ages of 18-20 to submit their stories to be her date at the Coral Glades High School Prom on May 18th.
After reviewing over 100 applications, Thompson chose Marine Lance Corporal Mark Scott, 20, a Wounded Warrior and Purple Heart recipient from Chicago who served in Afghanistan.
Thompson says in her video, “The military has been a big part of my life and my family’s.” After Thompson won her first pro event, she donated $20,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project, so the project is really close to her heart.
Although Thompson is home-schooled due to her busy pro schedule, her and Scott will have the enjoy the event held at Coral Glades High School.
Besides having the honor of taking Thompson to the prom, Scott will receive an all-expense paid trip to Ft. Lauderdale and of course, Coral Springs.
