ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- While most high school seniors are preparing for their first prom experience, a unique group of seniors in Rockford are reliving their high school days.

Seniors at Wesley Willows dance the night away at their Prom. Folks enjoyed a buffet dinner and danced to the sounds of the Auburn Jazz Band. The fun night was all made possible by area high school students who are a part of the RPS Superintendent's Advisory Council.

For one couple who grew up in Scotland, this was their very first Prom experience.

"I think it's wonderful being with the young people again and I think it's good for them to be with seniors," says Iris Laird. We're not all what they think we are, we can be fun."

Iris and her husband Jim have been married for 63 years.
