It' Graduation time!
3 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

When Thelma Harper is named class valevictorian for the upcoming commencement ceremony, she learns that she has to make a speech in front of everybody. Her grandson Bubba is planning to join his parents, Ed and Eunice in Tallahassee, Florida. When he doesn't get into his desired school, the family except Mama suggests that there is a junior or community college down there. Bubba doesn't know that his parents aren't coming up from Florida for his big night and they don't want him to live with them in Florida. Heartbroken, Bubba decides not to go the ceremony unless Mama Harper talks some sense into him. During this time, the ceremony is on hold and stalled by Iola, Vint and Naomi until Thelma and Bubba arrive to hear her speech. Joseph Campanella returns as Mr. Hanson, the teacher, to inform Thelma of her accomplishment.
