Iowa prom bridges generation gap

By Theresa Schmidt - bio | email

IOWA, LA. (KPLC) - It's prom time, but here in Iowa it's an event high school student council members are using to connect with older folks in the community. They hosted a senior prom during which both generations had a chance to learn some new moves.

Young and old danced to music played by a Cajun band.

The old folks appreciate the entertainment.

And while this was a first if the smiles are any indication it will be a yearly event...

We'll have more on the prom Monday on 7 News at Six.
