Dedicated Father Regrets Never Having Been to Prom – Teen Daughter Steps in and Brings Him to Tears

A young woman from Nevada fulfilled a lifelong promise and took her dad, who had never been able to go to his own prom, with her on the special night.

Prom is one of high school’s most exciting milestones. Kids get to dress to the nines, ride in limos, and party together! Usually, when someone misses prom they look back on their formative years and feel that something is missing.

Jermel Jones had never been able to attend prom and always regretted it, even talking to his baby daughter about his feelings. As a little girl, his daughter Janel made a promise to her dad: when she was a teen, she would bring her dad to her own prom.

Janel’s generation takes prom even more seriously than Jermel’s did. The kids in Janel’s year don’t simply ask one another to prom, they put together elaborate proposals, called prom-posals, in order to get a date. Janel decided that she would ask her dad to prom the right way, and go all out.
