Luckily for us—and the Internet—TIME received the above blast-from-the-past photo of President Barack Obama in 1979 at his Punahou School senior prom.
The image captures the 44th president before his double-date to the dance with his friend Greg Orme (far left), his date Kelli Arman and Obama’s date Megan Hughes (far right). The article where these pictures will be published can be found in TIME’s June issue in a story titled, “Obama’s Grand Old Party.”
In participation of Throwback Thursday, take a look at some familiar and unfamiliar old school shots of Obama from his college years to his wedding day.
