“I attended Harvard St. George School located at 4731 S. Ellis Avenue. As a social butterfly, I would walk to the Blackstone Library for school research projects, and I met students from all of the schools in Hyde Park. Often on a Friday, you could find us at Giordano’s, and back in the day, Max from Pizza Capri was the manager of Giordano’s. Outside of school food was the draw to Hyde Park and I loved the House of Eng rooftop views at 53rd and Hyde Park Blvd.”

“Hyde Park is the most diverse community on the south side of Chicago. The diversity has always brought me to the community. Over the past decade, we opened a real estate office in Hyde Park, and I taught social media and technology classes at the Polsky Center. The best time of the year in Hyde Park is the summertime. I add the Hyde Park Brewfest and Silveroom Block Party to my calendar when they release the date sometimes a year in advance.”

“My happiest moment in life has not occurred yet. On May 11th, 2019 I will experience my happiest moment as my oldest son will graduate from Howard University gainfully employed by Accenture as a Kappa Man. I’m already claiming a euphoric like experience.”

“My mother Hazel S. Lemons is the most influential person in life. My mother was an unwedded teen mother who believed in education and life experiences. As a young mother, she decided to make a huge financial sacrifice and send me to Harvard St. George. In 1982 she quit her job and was a pioneer in the food truck business. My mother owned and operated the Yellow Wagon Concessions located at the corner of Midway Plaisance and Cottage Grove. For seventeen years my mother severed her infamous steak burgers to the University of Chicago and Chicago Park District employees.”
