Teen Wants To Give Grandma Prom She Never Had, School Says No

There was a time when proms were made for firsts. They acted as a kind of debutante ball for teens and it would, for many, be the first social event of their young adult lives.

While this can lead to friendly, competitive rivalry between attendees. it is also the first major formal dance event that many attend and their first real chance to wear formal evening attire too.

However, one first that the organizers of prom never considered was taking your grandma as your date. As you’ll see, this first didn’t go down well with one school at all.

10. An American Tradition

Prom is an American tradition. It’s a coming of age event that integrates perfectly with the school year. It allows peers to come together and celebrate their passage into adulthood. It is the biggest milestone between the teenage years of school and either university or the world of work.

9. Prom Dates

It has always been part of the prom tradition for the young people to attend as couples wherever possible. Choosing a prom date is a big deal and many people agonize over their choice for days, weeks or even months before the event. Everyone remembers asking their date to the prom.

8. Enter Bryce Maine

Bryce Maine attends high school in Eufaula, Alabama and he had an unusual idea as to who his prom date should be. Unlike many young men of his age, he hadn’t found the right girl to take to prom at his school but he did know the perfect person in his life to accompany him on this special date.

7. Grandma. Will You Go?

Bryce told WTVMTV that, “My grandma’s always been an important part of my life, like, my only woman figure in my life, so I was thinking, ‘Why not take her?'”

This decision might seem reasonable to you, but you won’t believe what happened when the school heard about Bryce’s plans.

6. Rehearsal Time

Bryce explained that he wanted to take his grandma to the prom because she’d never been to her school prom when she was younger. He felt that if he could make that right for her then it would be a good thing to do. So he spent some time practicing the prom proposal for her.

5. The Prom Proposal

Bryce’s formal proposal was very sweet and perhaps a little unexpectedly sensitive from a boy of his age. He told reporters, “I went to Walmart and I got a little canvas and started doing my handprints around it in paint and I just put ‘PROM.’” Then all he need to do was wait for an answer.

4. She Said Yes

Nanny was very pleased with her invitation to the prom. She felt honored that her grandson would want to do something this special for her and she went shopping to celebrate. She found herself a brand new prom dress and was excited at the thought of wearing it to the prom with Bryce.

3. The Veto

Everything was going well for Steve and Nanny’s trip to the prom together except for one thing. The school principal, Steve Hawkins, put his foot down and blocked Nanny from accompanying Steve on their special night. Steve was furious and wanted to know why. The answer was a little shocking.

2. Drink Spiking

Steve pushed the principal to find out why his Nanny would be banned from the prom and was gobsmacked when the principal said, “Alcohol. In case, she was trying to distribute it to minors.”

This seems like a spurious reason for the ban at best and really upset Steve and his Nanny.

1. The Family Too

The whole family is now up in arms over the principal’s peculiar decision and they’ve taken to social media to plead their case and petition against the injustice. If you would like Nanny to go to the prom with Bryce then please use the hashtag #letnannygotoprom when talking about this on social media.

For the moment, it looks like Nanny will not be going with Bryce to the prom. The school says, “Safety of students and staff is the first and most important of the many tasks of a school administrator. For the 10 years I have been high school principal, we have denied requests each year from students asking to bring older dates to prom.  We do not chance leaving any stone unturned when it comes to safety. Most high schools have an age limit for prom attendees.”

What do you think? Should Nanny be able to go or not? Let us know in the comments below, please.
