Ebony Clark is officially a Worth County High School graduate! Ebony, a patient with Phoebe Hospice was able to check off an item from her bucket list. Worth County High School, Worth County Schools Social Worker, and Phoebe Hospice collaborated to create a special graduation ceremony for Ebony. The Class of 2018, staff, board members, community members, and supporters of Phoebe Hospice were in attendance at the event held at WCHS on Monday, October 23.
The 2018 Georgia State Teacher of the Year, Mr. Tibbetts spoke to the group and encouraged students to let Ebony be a shining example. Let her "overwhelming desire to gain her high school diploma be your rallying cry if you ever dare to entertain the notion of quitting before the race is over." In a one-on-one interview, Ebony shared some words of encouragement for her classmates: "Just keep believing, have faith and work hard. Everything in life doesn't come easy, but you'll just have to take your time and believe." Profound words from this young lady who has been fighting since age 14 when she was diagnosed with cancer.
The event ended with many photographs, hugs from friends, and Ebony receiving a white graduation gown signed by all of her classmates and teachers. We wish Ebony the best as she continues her battle. #RAMPRIDE
