A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men. (Proverbs 18:16 NKJV)
DALLAS — LaShanna Ford-Adeyemo went on picture-snapping frenzy on the afternoon of May 12.
No one didn’t seem to mind, however.
“I wish I had captured more groups of these 2022 Graduate Doctors from Dallas and Alabama,” Ford-Adeyemo said via Facebook post Sunday morning, a post that was accompanied by the hashtags: #blackdoctors and #melaninpoppin.
Amongst those in the memorable, festive photos in her gallery was Ford-Adeyemo’s son, Emmanuel Adeyemo, the youngest of 211 candidates for degrees during the May 12 commencement exercises for The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
“We’re blessed to have watched and be a part of his journey throughout these years,” Ford-Adeyemo told Making Headline News during its Annual Salute To Graduate Tributes for 2022.
For Emmanuel Adeyemo — suitably known as “Tommy” — he just continues to make unprecedented moves for someone who boasts lofty aspirations of delving off into the ever-evolving medical field.
Having enjoyed a UT Southwestern Medical Center stint in which he amassed a cumulative grade point average of 3.5, Emmanuel Adeyemo’s latest milestones exactly four years (May 12, 2018) after he acquired a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from the University of North Texas (in Denton) after having compiled a 3.94 cumulative grade point average.
Ironically, Emmanuel Adeyemo’s achievement comes two days after his sister, Adekanyinsola Adeyemo, 25, graduated from VCOM-Auburn Campus (Psychiatrist).
Amongst Emmanuel Adeyemo’s activities while at UT Southwestern included his involvement in Research in Orthopedics and Neurosurgery, as well as participating in Residency at Detroit Medical Center.
Approximately 72 hours removed from having witnessed arguably his grandest milestone, Emmanuel Adeyemo is a full-fledged Orthopedic Surgeon.
Interestingly enough, Emmanuel Adeyemo enrolled at UNT at the tender age of 15 and subsequently graduated with his Bachelor of Arts in Biology by the time he turned 19.
His latest accomplishment, by all accounts, is one that continues to amaze — and make proud — his parents, Adebowale Adeyemo and LaShanna Ford-Adeyemo.

“We’re proud of Tommy for setting his goals at an early age and achieving (them),” LaShanna Ford-Adeyemo told MHN.
What’s even more astounding is that Emmanuel Adeyemo, like many of his peers, had to press and navigate his way through an unprecedented global pandemic, his mother recalls.
“Despite the pandemic and its restrictions, Tommy was able to complete all of his rotations in other states,” LaShanna Ford-Adeyemo said.
Now we know why her picture-snapping frenzy on the afternoon of May 12 was necessary.
Now we know why no one didn’t seem to mind, either.
