Students give Seniors a prom they won't forget

HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) - It’s a four year Henderson tradition that many look forward to every year.

"This is the second time that we’ve come and we had so much fun last year that we decided we’d be back this time, " said Harry and Sug Bennett.

Community service projects have always been a staple at Henderson County high school.

Holding a dance for the senior citizens in their community has been a favorite way to give back.

"A lot of smiles and a lot of thank you’s they seem to be very blessed and having fun so that makes me happy,” said junior Kendyl McCord.

After their prom on Saturday, students left up the decorations to give someone else the opportunity to feel the magic.

"It’s precious really, when I dance with them I feel like it’s my grandma, and my grandma can’t walk that much anymore it really touches my heart,” said junior Isaiah Fallen.

For Dorothy, today was all about working up a sweat, living in the moment, and dancing enough for her and her late husband.

“I’m just trying to live my life, and I’m doing it and what he would want me to do,” said Dorothy Black.

For three hours students danced with seniors, took pictures, and danced some more.

It was a time everyone on the danced floor would remember.
