ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (AP) — An 80-year-old grandfather in northern Alabama has experienced his first high school prom after going as his granddaughter's date.

James "Poppa" Drain of Albertville told WHNT-TV (http://bit.ly/1zdHNOS) his granddaughter, Joy Webb, asked him to be her date for Saturday.

The prom was the first for Webb and Drain, who never had the chance to attend while he was young.

Webb wanted to share the event with her grandfather, who has been in her life since she was born.

For Drain, it was also his first time wearing a tuxedo.
