Courtney Widener's brother Casey, 22, serves in the Air Force and had just returned from a deployment in Afghanistan, so she thought it would be great if he could walk her down the red carpet at her high school prom. Not accompany her, just walk her to the door. But officials at Liberal High School in Kansas blocked the request, citing school rules barring anyone over 21 from taking part in any prom activities. After local and national media picked up the story, school officials apologized to the family and said they may consider changing the rules to allow family members to walk a student down the red carpet even if they are over 21.
