We congratulate you on earning your Ph.D.!
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away,
but we think the opposite is true
when the doctor is also a teacher.
So here’s an apple for the teacher, Doctor, and friend.
You are the apple of our eye,
the best of the bunch,
the cream of the crop.
You have the sophistication of a pink lady
and the sharp wit of a granny smith.
You’re as sweet as pie.
You’re good to your core.
Your knowledge is bountiful.
We know you would turnover backwards for us.
Because we could not hold a gala in your honor,
we honor you today with puns and provisions.
Thank you for all you do.
