This year at the non-denominational service, held at Emory’s Canon Chapel at noon on Friday, July 27th. This is a joyful and thought-provoking ceremony. Students expressed their gratitude for the wonderful gift they received through originals poems, song (the beautifully sung Amazing Grace), flute, baton twirling and lyric dance.
