Connor Campbell, a junior at Pinewood Prep in Summerville, South Carolina, has been telling his grandma, Betty Jane Keene, that he wanted to take her to prom. And the pair finally went to the big dance and had a lovely time.
Being 93 didn’t slow Grandma down, she had her hair, nails, and makeup done to get ready for the dance and was pretty in pink in her dress. Her grandson wore a matching pale pink tie and vest, and gave Betty Jane a wrist corsage with pink roses. She says she was “really dressed up for a 93 year old.”
So what was Grandma’s favorite part of the prom? Dancing with her grandson, of course.
“It was wonderful. It was really great,” Keene says. “It was about 100 children at that dance and it was so lovely and they all came up and shook my hand and then I got Connor to dance with me. He’s not a dancer, but I am.”
