Alisha Goodner & Brandon Goodner

How/where did you meet?

We met right before my senior year of high school at the Fox Creek Apartments. He pulled up in his white pickup and asked me out. We didn't even know each other but we have been together since that day.

Are there any special memories of you two on campus

We were on campus visiting with a friend who lived in Talley Hall. It was my 18th birthday and we had gotten into an argument. After we worked things out, he looked over at me and asked me to marry him. It was so spontaneous and sweet. I said yes that day and haven't regreted it one bit. He has seen my through a bachelor degree, a master's degree and now a second master's degree.

What did the two of you do for fun/dates?

We use to do lunch dates when we were both in class on campus or we would spend an evening playing pool and eatting in the cafe. Of course our favorite outing was and still is Mulerider Football.

How many years have you been together?

Together for 12 years Married for 10
