GASTON COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - Ooooooohhh... so full circle. Aubrey Bridges, the North Gaston HS graduate who took former NFL star Steve Smith to her prom, graduated from Winthrop Think College Program this weekend.
Aubrey was 18 when charity Dream On 3 set up her dream date. Steve was a perfect gentleman. If you want to start your week off right... watch this story from 2016. It was awesome to witness.
At the end of the story on WBTV News, her parents said they were thinking she might even be able to go to college...
