There’s always a ton of drama surrounding prom, whether it’s what to where or who to go with, but one high schooler had a sweet idea for the latter, until his school put the kibosh on the whole idea.
An Alabama teenager named Bryce wanted to bring his grandmother as his date because she never had the opportunity to go to prom herself. He even planned an elaborate promposal, and she went shopping and purchased a new dress. But then the principal at Eufaula High School principal got involved and decided not to let granny go to the big dance.
Bryce’s cousin took to Facebook to explain what happened, and noted that after the principal nixed grandma’s big day, the school board agreed, explaining that older dates have always been denied, and added that they worried “future students will do it as a joke and make the school a mockery.”
Students, of course, are up in arms over the tryly unfair decision, with many using the hashtag #letnannygotoprom, in the hopes the school will change their decision. Bryce’s cousin also says the school is trying to pressure him into getting the Facebook post taken down but his cousin shares, “It ain’t happening.”
