I can't imagine their parents' pride right now.

Spelman twins make history as school's co-valedictorians

For the first time ever, a local college has co-valedictorians that are also identical twins.

Channel 2’s Erin Coleman spent the day at Spelman College with the Bronner twins, as they're called, to talk about working hard, having faith, and sharing the title.

Kristie and Kirstie Bronner are the identical twins with identical grade point averages.

“Before we came to college we prayed that we would keep 4.0s all the way through but I don't think we ever really expected it,” said Kirstie Bronner.

“You can have strength together,” Kristie said.

The Spelman College seniors will graduate in a matter of days. They say they worked hard – so hard at first, they made themselves sick. But eventually, they learned how to balance things.

“We learned how to have a balance to life and then to be able to appreciate the journey of college and be more healthy and be more happy,” Kristie said.

“Every semester we learned something new about life, things we could apply to life, things we could apply to school,” Kirstie said.

They both majored in music.

“You don't have to be the smartest. You don't have to be the one who came in with the prior knowledge to be the one to succeed,” Kristie Bronner said. “It’s a great testimony and it's also fun to be able to share it with one another. I don't think we'd want it any other way."

After graduation, they will join the youth ministry of their father’s church, Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral. They also plan to record a youth contemporary gospel album.

Who Killed Kendrick Johnson

By kamoore35 | Posted April 12, 2013 | Valdosta, Georgia

Kendrick Johnson was a 17-year-old boy from Valdosta, Georgia, whose death was ruled accidental. Take a look at this picture of him alive next to a picture of him dead and you be the judge. Many people suspect foul play, as his face appears to be beaten. The teen was found upside down in a rolled up mat inside the gym of Lowndes High School. Authorities states he fell into the center of the mats accidentally reaching for his shoe claiming he died because his blood rushed to his head after being in an upside down position for too long. Just hours after Kendrick's death Sheriff Prine states "no foul play" but around April 9,2013 Sheriff Prine changed the status of "no foul play" to " There is no way this went down the way the law officials are portraying. No family should have to deal with this lack of investigation" there is also another break in the case which comes from the coroner Bill Watson whom wasn't called to the crime scene that was led by Sheriff Chris Prine until hours after the body was found. In January Bill Watson spoke to Valdosta Daily Times this is what he stated " This was not fair to the decedent, his family, and the citizens of Valdosta and Lowndes County Ga. And it's wrong as rain". Lowndes High School will not release the footage of Kendrick last seen at school. The Johnson family wants reveal Kendrick's death was no accident he was murdered, they want answers and justice.
