Jim Wainscott and Lori Cook met as children and got to know one another during their teenage years by attending Dallasburg Baptist Church. The two attended Cook’s prom together, and after going their separate ways for more than 30 years, Wainscott and Cook were reunited in 2017 and are set to tie the knot in May.

At just 17 years old, Lori Cook was set to graduate from Owen County High School one year early. In addition to excelling in academics, Cook was also happily taken by a Carrollton boy named Brian Harmon. At least, that’s what Cook and her best friend Gwena Grisham had led everyone to believe.
The two teenaged girls had devised a plan to catch the attention of a slightly older boy whom Cook had gotten to know by attending Dallasburg Baptist Church in Wheatley.
