Graduated out!!!

Posted: May 15, 2018 6:09 AM

Friday I watched two of my adopted daughters(best friends of my daughter's) graduate from Clemson, then ran over to Atlanta to watch my daughter graduate from Emory on Monday in a FIVE hour ceremony(they really do them long there). Glad it is all over. I have one more to go in June, then I'm done for a long time I hope.

Atlanta, but with all the hills and trees you don't realize it. But after her freshmen year it seemed that she kept moving closer to the CDC and her senior year it was half a mile away from her apartment on Clairmont.

yes.the boards were invented there,so the school gets a residual on every one made,and that's why emory has such a large endowment.

Hence the huge endowment and no FOOTBALL team. He had a relative killed playing football in the early days and if Emory ever fields a school football team it stops. Our speaker was the guy who started "Dollar Shave Club" who is also an amateur comedian so it was one of the best commencement addresses ever. The guy graduated with a 2.6 GPA and is now a billionaire.
He made poor Professor Giles, who flunked him twice before he graduated in 2002, stand up and get a round of applause. The poor Prof looked totally bumfuzzled and said he didn't remember him at all. Then he made us all give a round of applause for all the kids whose name started with "Z" because they were always last in everything that was done alphabetically! He was the best part of the ceremony outside the actual graduation.

I taught for 8 years at Druid Hills HS which is on/next to the Emory campus. As a teacher at DH, you had better get to school early on graduation day or your parking space might be taken.

God I love you guys!...
