A senior in high school takes his 92-year-old great-grandmother to his prom, which is a big deal.

Prom is one of those special high school memories that many first-year students look forward to from the moment they step foot on campus. But some people never make it to their senior prom for different reasons.

Dakota Wollan, a senior at Watford City High School in Watford City, North Dakota, didn’t plan to go to his prom. Even though there were people in his class he could ask, he didn’t want to ask anyone.

His father then gave him a good idea.

Dakota asked his great-grandma – The high school senior liked the idea and decided to make a plan for his great-grandmother, who is 92 years old.

“She gave me this old truck. It’s a 1985 Ford that she gave to me, and I fixed it up and got it running again. So I made a sign out of that truck,” he told KFYR.

Even though he asked someone in his family, he said he was still “pretty nervous.”

But it turned out that he didn’t need to worry because Madeline Miller was happy.

She said, “I had never been to prom before.”

Madeline asked, “Why would he want a 92-year-old to go to prom with him when there are so many young girls in the school?”

Dakota didn’t care about his age because he said that if it weren’t for his great-grandmother, he wouldn’t have gone to his last prom, and she wouldn’t have gone to her first.

The two were a big hit at the senior prom at Watford City High School.

Dakota said, “When we walked out on the floor, everyone went crazy.”

Madeline said her favourite parts of the dance were “walking with my great grandson while listening to this music and people clapping and hollering.”

This was such a kind thing to do! I’m glad that both my great-grandson and great-grandmother had a great time at prom.

Please tell all your friends and family about this beautiful story.
