Nationwide — La’nisha and Ron’nisha Richardson, two graduating seniors from Yazoo City, Mississippi, have made history after they both graduated from their high school with 4.1 GPAs. Not only that, they both earned top honors as both valedictorian and salutatorian.
La’nisha has already been accepted at Mississippi State to become a physical therapist, and Ron’nisha is planning to join the Air Force to pursue a medical career.
“We definitely credit our mom when it comes to making sure we are on top,” Ron’nisha told WAPT. “It’s our work and we have to get it done, she makes sure we get it done and if we don’t get it done, it’s gonna be a problem.”
The twins admit that they are disappointed about not being able to have a prom or a traditional graduation, but they are still very much excited about starting their new life as college students.
