junior takes great grandma to prom

Prom is a very big deal for a lot of high school kids -- I've been impressed with all the photos on Facebook of my friends' kids all dressed up for the big event. But I have to say I am most impressed with this Crothersville High School teen from Indiana. Junior Drew Holm took his 93-year-old great-grandmother to his prom and their story will put a huge smile on your face.

Drew and his great-grandma Katie Keith have a close relationship, and when she asked him if he was going to prom a few weeks back, he told her no because he didn't have anyone to take.

Great-grandma joked that he should take her. They both had a laugh and went on with their day. But that got Drew thinking and he ended up doing something really special -- he returned to her house with a formal invitation asking her to the prom.

Great-grandma Katie said, "Drew, my goodness, I don't want to go to the prom with you. Surely you can find a real cute girl to go with you."

Her great-grandson told her that she was the prettiest woman he knows, and that he wanted to take her to his prom.

Isn't this just the sweetest?! Drew and his great-grandmother had what is going to be one of the best memories of their life. And I have to say, having survived a couple of proms many moons ago, I wish I took my grandpa instead. Sometimes those things are full of high school dating drama. Besides, I wish I had more moments and memories with my grandpa.

With a gorgeous corsage, great-grandma Katie and her great-grandson Drew danced and laughed and were home a little after 9 p.m. Drew, who started dating a girl shortly after he secured his date with great-grandma, met up with his girlfriend for the after-party. This makes me admire this kid even more -- even when he got a girlfriend, he didn't cancel on his great-grandma date! That's a good young man, right there.
