    High school junior takes great-grandmother to prom

    High school junior takes great-grandmother to prom



    Katie Keith has already been to one prom. "I even went to mine back in 1940," she said. Then the dance was a waltz and the dress was less elaborate. "Nobody had formals," she said. "We all just went in our going-to-church dresses and what we had."

    Friday, it was great-grandson Drew's turn at Crothersville Junior-Senior high. "She asked me if I was going to prom and I said no," said Drew Holm. "She's like, 'Why not?' and I was like, 'I don't have anyone to take and I could care less about it.'"

    Keith said, "I said, 'Well, I've got a dress, I'll go with you.' I was just joking you know."

    i just love this story, what a fine young man

    his parents should be very proud of him...........

    the cutest part of the story? he had to get permission from the principal to take her to the prom since she exceeded the age limit of 21.......

    He's a keeper, ladies. I love his smile and she looks so beautiful. That's a moment in time they will both cherish. I can just imagine the reaction of the principle when first learning it was his great-grandmother. "Your what?"
