Twin sisters to serve as co-valedictorians at Chicago school

June 5, 2019

CHICAGO (AP) — Two Chicago sisters who share a birthday are also set to become co-valedictorians this weekend at a high school on the city’s South Side.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that twin sisters, Tia and Tyra Smith, graduate Saturday from Lindblom Math and Science Academy with perfect 4.0 GPA’s. They say they are used to doing things together, like sharing textbooks and a love of theater.

The two have only spent one full day apart when Tia visited a college in the spring.

But they plan to go their separate ways after graduation.

They both have full scholarships to different schools. Tyra is going to Northwestern University and plans to study economics and Tia will go to Duke University to study statistics. Both plan to study theater as well.
