The future awaits
By Meredith Chastain & Meghan Schroder
May is our month of ceremonies. It marks the close of school, end of spring sports seasons, prom and graduations. It is also the month of one of our favorite events, The Gwinnett County Sports Hall of Fame.
We have been the official photographers for this event since its 2010 inception. It is a night to look at the amazing success that has been achieved in our county. One of my favorites that night was Kyle Maynard, former Collins Hill wrestler. He was born without arms or legs and has managed to be a mixed martial arts fighter, gym owner, author, mountain climber and ESPN Espy Award Winner. In his speech, he detailed the opportunities he believes he only had by virtue of moving to Gwinnett County when he was elementary school age. In a tribute to Coach Cliff Ramos (2016 GCSHOF inductee), he said that the coach would stay with him after practice and Coach Ramos would tuck his arms in his sleeves and work out wrestling moves.
We have the privilege of attending many graduations in May to say goodbye to our beloved seniors. This year we said goodbye to the Class of 2017. Loganville Christian Academy had us take a unique memento for their graduates- a panoramic of their senior class in cap and gowns.
