A  student from Rockford, Ohio who learned that his great-grandmother had not gone to the prom when she was in high school would not relent until she agreed to let him escort her to his own high school formal.

Austin Dennison first took Delores Dennison, 89, for dinner at Bob Evans (her favorite restaurant) and then the two took the dance floor — and video of their slow-dancing has gotten national attention.

The two were home by 9 p.m., which is later than Delores normally goes to bed, the Times Bulletin reported. Next up, Austin, a senior and an Eagle Scout, plans to attend Florida Gulf Coast University.
