John Schirrippa, who went to grade school in Springs, grew up in Springs, graduated from East Hampton High School in the class of 2000, and now currently lives in Virginia, got engaged on Sunday to his long time girlfriend Karen.
John and I traveled to Africa together and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. His proposal to his fiance Karen did not surprise me. The two of them are just adorably in love with one another.
John and I ran track together in high school, and have been friends since we were about ten years old. I just couldn’t be happier for him.
He proposed at Nationals stadium in Washington D.C. I’m sure his mother Amelia lost her mind in Springs when she heard the news. CONGRATS TO YOU TO AMELIA!
