Teen takes great-grandmother to her first prom

An Ohio high school student is making headlines for taking his 89-year-old grandmother to her first ever prom.

Austin Dennison took his grandmother, Delores Dennison, to the Parkway High School prom this year after being inspired by a teacher whose brother had done the same thing.

“I asked Grandma if she would be my date to the prom and she said that she would be honored,” Austin said. “I told her that it would be my privilege.”
