High School Senior Takes His Great-Grandma to Prom

Friday Feel-Good: This Teen Brought His Great-Grandma to Her First Prom

High school senior Austin Dennison sweetly asked his 89-year-old great-grandmother, Delores, to his prom, since she had to miss her own back in the 1940s. Austin, a 19-year-old from Ohio, called Delores to see if she'd like to be his date. Of the invitation, she said, "He was so sweet and adamant about it. I asked him, 'But are you sure you don't want to take one of the young ladies who could get out there and do everything with you?' He said no. 'I want you.'"

The pair went dress shopping, and Austin gave her a pearl necklace. On the night of the prom, they were introduced at the promenade, receiving a standing ovation. Austin had a special surprise for her too. He made sure that the song his late Grandpa Ed used to sing to her — "Dolores" by Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, and The Pied Pipers — played during the dance. Watch Austin and his great-grandma's sweet time on the dance floor above, and see pictures from their date night below.
