An Alabama high school told a student that he could not bring his grandma to prom because she is too old.
How awful is that?
Bryce Maine, who attends Eufaula High School, wanted to bring his grandmother, Catherine Maine, to be his prom date on April 8, which is also his birthday. Catherine had never been to prom before and Bryce thought it would be sweet to bring his grandma.
That was until the Eufaula High School principal said no. The principal was told that Bryce had already bought the dress for his grandma, but he didn’t care.
The school later said they denied the request because his grandma might bring and distribute alcohol to the other students.
They later changed the reason, saying that prom attendees must be under the age of 20.
Steve Hawkins, the principal, said he denied multiple requests to bring older dates, but refused to acknowledge that Bryce was trying to bring his grandma, and instead referred to her as an “older date.”
Nothing to see here, just another power hungry school official trying to dictate every facet of our children’s lives.
