TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Grandparents were honored Saturday night at the Leroy Rogers Senior Center in Tifton. The Wilson High class of 1970 put on the special event.

The class said grandparents not only nurture their grandchildren, but also numerous ones have had the role of actually raising them.

Many of the classmates are grandparents, and they realized the important part grandparents play in the lives of their grandchildren.

"Some of them are raising grandchildren. Recognition means so much and so this is our way of giving back again," said Wilson Class of 1970 President Veronica Graydon.

A large crowd enjoyed the free food, music, and gift exchanges.
