“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
