Kimberly Gibbs '08 and Nick Kirschner '08 may have a Riverdale registrar to thank for their recent engagement. During their junior year, Kim and Nick were among only five classmates to have C-period free. They spent most of their time together and sparked a Riverdale romance filled with memories of senior prom, football games, and Chef Paul's famous bacon, egg, and cheese.

 

More than 10 years later, Nick lured Kim back to campus for a supposed BBQ at Milton Sipp's house. Instead of eating ribs, Nick and Kim sipped champagne on a rose-covered Stillman Amphitheater after she answered a resounding "yes!" to his proposal. Cheers to love that begins and develops at Riverdale!
