ALTOONA, Penn. -- Most guys have enough trouble finding one person to take to the prom. But Sammy Lamar is not like most guys.

Sammy, a student at Penn Cambria High School in Pennsylvania, was asked to prom by 37 different ladies.

Sammy, who was also named Prom King, was born with special needs. His female friends banded together to make Prom Night one to remember for their classmate.

"It's very heartwarming to be able to have him here with us," classmate Karingtin Sklodowski said. "He is apart of the class of 2016 so like I said before he should have the moment that all seniors get to have and seeing him in his tux and how nice he looks, his sunglasses on and his smile, just makes senior prom the top."

Sammy is set to graduate June 4.
