For one young man who attends Penn Cambria High School in Cresson, Pennsylvania, he had a prom night he’ll never forget with his 37 dates.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re a freshman or a senior. Everyone knows Sam,” classmate Abby Harvey told Sara Small from NBC affiliate WJAC. “Sam taught me how to smile. No matter what happens, you could be having a bad day, you’ll see Sam and he’s smiling and happy in the hallway and whatever I’m upset about doesn’t matter anymore.”
The girls wrote out the request in big letters on poster boards, “Will you go to prom with us?” and surprised Sammy in the school gymnasium. They even asked Sammy’s mom for permission, sending her a letter asking if they could take him.
On his big night, after being escorted in by 37 dates, Sammy was crowned prom king.
