A 14-year-old student was thrilled when he was asked to attend a prom for students with special needs.
Lacory Carlton has autism and his friends were on hand to witness his reaction when he was asked to the prom by his friend Cresnesia.
Lacory’s mom Latonya Walker sent the video to News 2 saying “the world needs more love and joy” and hopes it will touch some hearts. His teacher made sure to capture the moment so it can be shared with his family.
Lacory and Cresnesia both attend McGavock High School and will no doubt enjoy the Best Buddies Tennessee’s Chapter’s prom Sunday at Bridgestone Arena.
