The Atlanta sisters have traveled every step of their time at Spelman together, reports Atlanta Business Chronicle broadcast partner WXIA-TV. They grew up close, the station says, adding that the sisters were home-schooled and spent time volunteering in their father’s church.
At Spelman, they have been permanent roommates, and served as each other’s study partner and motivator.They’ve stayed focused on their studies. There has been no Facebook or Twitter, but there has been a lot of prayer and hard work, WXIA-TV said.
The Bronners said they didn’t set out to become valedictorians; they simply set out to do their best.
“We both have the same drive,” Kristie Bronner said. “We didn’t want to do the same things everyone else did. People would invite us out on school days and we would always say no. We only hung out on the weekends because during the week was the time that we just did our work.”
The sisters plan to take jobs in their father’s church, working as music directors and youth coordinators, WXIA said.
