Charlotte Twins Awarded Over $1 Million In Scholarships
A pair of Charlotte, North Carolina twins have promising futures ahead of them.
Twin sisters Kamryn and Kaycee Hailey at West Charlotte high school were profiled by WBTV News who reports that they’re while they’ll be attending rival colleges, they’ve racked up over $1 million in scholarships.
One of those scholarships is The Charlotte Post’s Top Senior scholarship, which Kaycee was awarded due to her 4.65-grade point average, work as a peer mentor and other amazing accomplishments. While she was the runner-up for the top prize, she’ll still be awarded a scholarship for her schooling this fall.
Kamryn is going to be a Tarheel at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, while her sister Kaycee is set to be a Duke Blue Devil.
Kamyrn is looking to pursue studying either business or communications and Kaycee is thinking about African-American studies. The two scholars are both excited to have their independence, and are excited that both their campuses are down the street from each other.
“It’s nice knowing that I’m on a different campus and I get to be my own independent person, but if I ever want to see her I can just go so easily and see her,” says Kacyee.
“I’m excited to see what it’s going to be like when I get to college,” says Kamryn.
These girls will go SO many places.
