Twins Named Co-Valedictorians at Spelman College

kirstie-and-kristie-bronner-(small)Spelman College, the highly-rated liberal arts college for African American women in Atlanta, has announced that two women will share honors as valedictorians of the Class of 2013. Both women recorded perfect 4.0 grade point averages at Spelman. And most notably the co-valedictorians are twin sisters, Kirstie and Kristie Bronner.

Both students are music majors and spent their junior year abroad studying in Milan, Italy. The sisters come from a religious family and they prayed together before working on every homework assignment and before every examination. Both their mother and grandmother are Spelman graduates.

After graduation, the sisters plan to join the youth ministry at the Word of Faith Family Worship Catherdral in Atlanta, where the pastor is their father, Bishop Dale Bronner. They also plan on making a recording of contemporary Christian music and to write a book aimed at preparing high school students for college.
