School Denies Teen Who Wanted To Take His Grandma To Prom

The teen plans for the pair to make their own prom.

An Alabama high school student thought it’d be a great idea to take his beloved granny to prom.

Bryce Maine, a senior at Eufaula High School, ran with the idea and even prepared a promposal for his grandma who’d never been to a prom herself.

With a little canvas from Walmart and the word “Prom?” written on it, he popped the question.

“My Grandma is the most important woman in my life and she's never had a prom before so I figured why not let her go with me,” Bryce told

Of course she said yes. 

Bryce’s plans were cut short, however, when his school said no. School officials told the teen that he could not take her because she could possibly provide alcohol to minors and the school could not bend the rules for him.

Eufala High School policy states that no one over the age of 20 can attend the dance.

“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,” Steve Hawkins, principal of Eufaula City Schools, told

Bryce said he won’t be attending prom without his “nannie,” but that’s not stopping the pair from preparing a fun night.

“I will not attend the prom without her. We will just make our own,” Bryce said.

Bryce plans to throw a prom at his house with music, lights, and friends. Nannie will wear the dress she’d already planned to wear.
