Austin Dennison is a handsome 19-year-old senior at Parkway High School in Rockford, Ohio.  He's an Eagle Scout . . . a volunteer firefighter . . . played football, baseball, and basketball . . . and even played in the school band.

 

He also just had his senior prom . . . and judging by his prom photo, it looks like he could have taken any date he wanted.  But instead of asking some girl from school . . . he decided to take his 89-year-old GREAT-GRANDMOTHER.

 

Her name is Delores Dennison, and she grew up in West Virginia.  She never graduated high school because times were tough . . . so she never went to the prom. 

 

But Austin wanted to help her experience it.  He says, quote, "I respect my elders greatly.  They have a great influence on my life.  To be able to sit down and talk to them and learn from them and their experiences is a great thing."

 

So he took her to dinner at Bob Evans, and they headed to the prom for photos and dancing.  They got a standing ovation, and the DJ even played the FRANK SINATRA song "Dolores"  . . . which Delores's husband sang to her when he was alive.

 

Austin even got her home by 9:00 P.M. . . . which is actually later than Delores usually stays up.
