Shontelle Howard-Moss missed out on her high school prom because she was due to give birth to her son. Eighteen years later, she finally got to attend the prom, courtesy of her son, Rayquan Howard, a student at East Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, N.C.


On Saturday, Rayquan escorted his mother to his prom, which was held at the Levine Museum of the New South in Charlotte.

“It’s always been on my heart,” Rayquan said. “I wanted to make it special. She didn’t get to go to her prom, so I made it a priority to take her to my prom.”


Now, that’s what you call a good son!

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
