Prom is one of those memorable events that many high school students anticipate from the time they arrive on campus as freshmen. Some, however, do not attend their senior prom for a variety of reasons.
Dakota Wollan, a senior at Watford City High School in Watford City, North Dakota, had no intentions of attending his prom. While he could have asked folks in his class, he didn’t really want to.
But then his dad had a brilliant idea.
The high school senior liked the concept and chose to make a proposal to his great-grandmother, who is 92 years old.
He have this old truck she gave me; it’s a 1985 Ford that she passed down to him, and he fixed it up. He took that vehicle and built a sign, he explained.
Despite having asked a family member, he admitted to being “very scared.”
But it turned out that he had nothing to worry about since Madeline Miller was overjoyed.
She never went to a prom before, she explained.
She was simply thinking why he would choose a 92-year-old to accompany him to prom when there are so many young females in the school, Madeline explained.
Dakota claimed that if it hadn’t been for his great-grandmother, he wouldn’t have been able to attend his final prom, and his great-grandmother wouldn’t have been able to attend her first.
At Watford City High School’s senior prom, the two were a big hit.
They came out on the floor, and all went crazy, Dakota explained.
Walking by her great grandson, listening to this music as they went, and everybody clapping and cheering, Madeline recalled the dance.
