Montgomery natives, Lauren Salter and his son, Courtney, have made themselves proud as they both graduate from Alabama State University in the United States.
Becauseofthemwecan.com reports that the Montgomery natives have a long legacy of ASU graduates in their family, including Salter's mom and aunt and Courtney's father.
Courtney was born with a love for Alabama State University, partly because he had so many family members who attended the university and also because he attended ASU's Zelia Stephens Early Childhood Learning Center from kindergarten through to his third-grade year.
His mother, on the other hand, graduated from high school in 1984, going on to attend Auburn University Montgomery before transferring to Trenholm State Technical College.
Salter bagged multiple degrees from the school, graduating with her dental assistant degree and embarking on a 28-year career in the dental sector.
Her son graduated from high school in 2016 and his plans to attend ASU inspired Salter to return to university.
Although they had no idea they’ll graduate simultaneously, Salter and her son walk across the stage on the same weekend.
Courtney, who is a member of the spring 2020 class, will graduate today [Sunday], 22 November, just two days after his mother Lauren, a member of the fall 2020 class, graduated on Friday, 20 November.
Salter is graduating with a degree in interdisciplinary studies, and her son Courtney is graduating with a degree in finance.
