An Indiana teenager who took his 93-year-old great-grandmother to his junior prom says he had a great time, even though her early bedtime cut the date a little short. Drew Holm says his classmates thought it "was pretty cool" that he asked Kathryn Keith to the Crothersville High School junior prom. Holm picked up Keith in her Cadillac for the dance in Seymour, about 60 miles south of Indianapolis.

Keith, who wore a blue dress, told the Seymour Tribune she's proud that he asked her. The pair hit the dance floor for only one song, sharing a slow dance. Their night ended by 9pm because Keith has an early bedtime. Holm then took his girlfriend to an after-prom event at a bowling alley. (More uplifting news stories.)
