Jarrett on Grad

Sheena: Tell me about the day of Grad.

Jarrett: It was great. It was the best feeling ever. It’s a great feeling.

Sheena: Tell me what you did getting ready for grad.

Jarrett: Chilling out with the homies, getting ready slowly throughout the day, Got up that morning, had a shower, put on my normal clothes, then at about 12:00 I actually jumped in my suit because I had pictures at 1:00.

Sheena: Tell me about the pictures.

Jarrett: It was pretty fun, it was pretty good. Took pictures with all my friends and my family, so that was good.

Sheena: Tell me about waiting for grad, standing outside in the front, what was that like?

Jarrett: Nervous. I was nervous, I just had this nervous feeling of going on stage, excitement, neverous, but you’re also ready at the same time, because it’s all worth it.Right?

Sheena: What was it like lining up with your dad before the entry?

Jarrett: That was nerve wracking for me. Sitting there I finally realized it I finally did it.

Sheena: What was it like up on stage? Who were you sitting by?

Jarrett: I was sitting beside Michael and Seth. I was sitting there the whole time. I was called right after Truth. When I got my diploma I was like, this is crazy, I actually did it. I was actually going to drop out of school in September, but I didn’t, and I’m glad I didn’t or else I wouldn’t have my diploma.

Sheena: What was it like getting the eagle feather?

Jarrett: That was pretty cool. I liked that. It was a nice feather, black tipped. It was pretty cool.

Sheena: Anything else you’d like to tell us about graduation?

Jarrett: Don’t give up, Calen, keep going.
