GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - A young West Michigan couple will be celebrating the new year as fiances.
Nerves did not get the best of Private First Class Robert Atwater Monday night when he and girlfriend Kody Kelly walked to the center of the ice skating rink at Rosa Parks Circle. That is where Atwater proposed to Kelly- in front a crowd numbering in the thousands.
Atwater graduated from Grandville High School last year, and Kelly is a senior there now.
WZZM's Madeline Segura described the event, one the two young loves will never forget.
