LEWISTON — About 300 students cheered as they watched their school secretary accept a marriage proposal during an assembly at a Lewiston school.

Martel Elementary School secretary Rebecca Lussier had no idea what was going on when she was called into the assembly Monday afternoon.

But her boyfriend, Bill Hensley, had done his homework with help from school Principal Steve Whitfield, who helped to arrange the surprise event.

The Sun Journal of Lewiston says Lussier seemed baffled when asked to sit in a balloon-decorated chair facing the audience before Hensley popped the question and produced a ring.

She said yes as 300 students cheered.
