CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has brought many postponements and even cancellations for major events for high school seniors.

Most area schools have canceled their proms, the highlight for many seniors.

However, one South Texas family found a creative way to still have this special night for their daughter.

Jenna Flores says the coronavirus pandemic has created extreme adjustments to her last school year at Flour Bluff High School.

“I really miss my classmates, and I wish I could finish my golf season but we didn’t get to do that,” says Flores.

Due to stay-at-home orders, Flores is not able to hang out and gather with friends, her sports programs are over, and of course no prom.

But her parents had an idea.

Her four-legged pup approached her with a “promposal,” asking if Jenna would like to partake in prom at home.

Jenna happily accepted and her family was able to bring “A Night in Paris” to South Texas.

Her quarantine prom was filled with loved ones, her favorite music with her favorite dance partner, her father.

“Me and my wife gave that time to our daughter, I loved it, never had a problem dancing with our daughter so it was easy but it was definitely special,” says Jenna’s father James Flores.

Jenna says her prom night was something she will always remember.

“I was very surprised when they did that, and it really touched my heart and it really made me happy,”she said.
