Poem for the Graduate


“Inspiration for the poem “Happy Graduation” came from watching my nephew, Lamar Stewart, slide and skip across the stage as he accepted his Engineering degree from GA Tech in 2006.  I gave this framed poem to the high school Seniors at my school for the past five years.

This year it will be bitter-sweet because they have not decided if Dekalb County school district will have a ceremony, due to the coronavirus crisis.” – Sherryl Jackson Gill
