4 Memorable Prom Moments That Went Viral This Year

Written on June 6, 2014 at 2:59 pm , by

Prom isn’t only about the glitz and glam of whose wearing what anymore. It’s also about making a viral statement in a memorable way. 2014 prom season showed that your teen isn’t necessarily as superficial and out of touch as you may think.  From teens uniting to support a friend with cancer to one bold high schooler getting the attention of Vice President Joe Biden, the Internet was constantly buzzing about teens and prom.


Teen takes great-grandmother to prom

19-year-old Austin Dennison had the Internet singing his praises when this video went viral. The Ohio teen deiced to take his 89-year-old great-grandmother, Delores, as his date to prom. Delores, who recently had a heart attack and stroke, was never asked to prom. Austin even had the DJ play Frank Sinatra’s “I Love the Kisses of Delores,”—a song his great-grandfather used to sing to her—as their first dance.  How sweet!


Virginia teens unite to support a friend with cancer 

Seventeen teens of Osbourn Park High School in Virginia made a powerful and heartwarming statement when everyone decided to wear protective masks in support of Jared Hill. Jared was diagnosed with testicular cancer last September, and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. His doctor told him that if he wanted to take his girlfriend to prom, he would have to wear a protective mask. So, everyone in their prom group did the same. This photo captures the memorial night that unified everyone.


Classmates of slain teen pay tribute 

After the lost of 16-year-old Maren Sanchez, who was stabbed to death in the hallway of a Connecticut high school, classmates decided to pay tribute to the beloved teen by dressing up and bringing out the gown she would have worn to their junior prom. The group photo taken was a bit controversial, with some saying it was inappropriate. But the sentimental gesture was felt around the world. The school even postponed the dance, but Sanchez was named prom queen.


Teen asks Joe Biden to Prom

When you want something go get it, right? That’s exactly what 18-year-old Talia Maselli did. The Newington High School senior mailed a handwritten note seven months ago, requesting that Vice President Joe Biden escort her to the dance. Her note was very straightforward: “I could only tolerate a high school dance if I was to be escorted by the most delightful man in America.” Of course, she didn’t expect to hear back. But to her surprise, Biden did eventually respond the day before the prom, with a note and a corsage delivered to Maselli’s home. What a way to get the attention of someone!
