Kevin and Carol Spaulding of Laurel announce the engagement of their daughter, Stacy Spaulding, to John Jowers, son of Rik and Gina Jowers of Beltsville.

Spaulding graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2006. She is a fourth-grade teacher in Montgomery County Public Schools.

Jowers graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 2005. He will be a physical therapist and expects to graduate from the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore this September.

In his summer proposal, Jowers took Spaulding skydiving. As Spaulding got closer to earth, she suddenly noticed a large banner on the landing strip that boldly said, ‘‘Stacy, will you marry me?”

She landed in front of the banner, ecstatic and shaking, where Jowers met her on one knee.

The wedding is scheduled to take place in September at Eastern Yacht Club along the Chesapeake Bay.
