Neighbors Cheer On Graduates

Neighbors, families and friends cheered and clapped for neighborhood 2020 graduates as they paraded through Druid Hills in their cars last Sunday, May 31, ending in front of banners in Emory Village. Justin Critz, former Druid Hills Civic Association president and proud father, organized the parade, with support from Druid Hills Civic AssociationEmory Village Alliance – EVASouth Fork Conservancy, and Druid Hills Patrol.

While COVID-19 prevented our graduates from having ceremonies at their individual schools, your friends and neighbors are proud to acknowledge your well-earned accomplishments! Please tell us what school or university you graduated from, your field of study, and anything else you would like to share with us on our Facebook page. Feel free to post photos!
