Dakota Wollan from Watford City, N.D. is somehow different from all the other students in his school because unlike them, he was not that excited about prom. He didn’t even know who to ask to go with him to the event.

A Suggestion


When Dakota told his parents about his dilemma, his dad suggested that he take his great-grandma to the prom.

Madeline’s Story


Dakota’s 92-year-old great-grandma, Madeline Miller, had never been to prom because she only attended high school for one year and a half because her father got sick and she had to help on the farm.
