Black triplets from Ola High School in McDonough, Georgia have graduated summa cum laude, each with a perfect 4.0 GPA.
Kolby, Sydney and Kendall Belcher were also dual enrolled in college while in high school so they started college with about a year of credits.
The school and parent made their joy known as they gave the set of triples a well deserving accolades. “I’m very happy and proud of them”, Cathey Belcher, the mother said.
The black triplets were said to have started learning at age 3, with their parents teaching them how to read and write.
Cathey said, “They took off from there and knew they were expected to do their best and never settle for a B or C grade when they could get an A”.
All are attending college, with different careers in mind. Kendall is attending Gordon State College and wants a career in the financial services industry, while Kolby is attending Georgia State University and planning on pursuing a marketing career. Sydney is also attending Georgia State University to become a nurse and with the hope of working in the hematology/oncology department of a children’s hospital someday.
The mother added that she is excited about them going to college. “We are encouraging them to keep doing what they have been doing and reminding them to always give back to their community”.
