Prom is a special memory that high school students usually look forward to from their first year. But for different reasons, some students never get to go to their senior prom.

Dakota Wollan, a senior at Watford City High School in North Dakota, didn’t plan on going to his prom. Even though there were people in his class he could have asked, there wasn’t anyone he really wanted to go with.

But then, his father gave him a great idea.

The high school senior really liked the idea, so he decided to make a special proposal to his 92-year-old great-grandmother.

“I have this old truck she gave me, it’s a 1985 Ford she handed down to me, and I got it running again. So, I took that truck and made a sign,” he told KFYR.

Even though he was nervous about asking a family member, it turned out he had nothing to worry about because Madeline Miller was thrilled.

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

“I was just curious why he would want a 92-year-old to go to prom with him when there are so many young girls in the school,” Madeline said.

But Dakota didn’t care about age. He said if it wasn’t for his great-grandmother, he wouldn’t have gone to his last prom, and she wouldn’t have had the chance to go to her first.

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

“We walked onto the dance floor, and everyone got really excited,” Dakota said.

Madeline said her favorite parts of the dance were “walking beside my great-grandson, listening to the music as we walked, and people clapping and cheering.”

This was such a sweet gesture! I’m so happy to see both great-grandson and great-grandma had an awesome time at prom.
