37 girls brought a special needs student to prom and he was crowned prom king

A young man named Sam at Penn Cambria High School in Cresson, Pennsylvania, has managed to take 37 girls to prom in a single night.

Sammy the prom king

“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,” she added.

The girls used poster boards to write out the message: “Will you go to prom with us?” and surprised Sammy in the school gymnasium.

Before they shared the note they even asked Sammy’s mom for permission, sending her a letter asking if they could take him to prom.

Not only was Sammy escorted to prom by 37 girls, he also won prom king!
