The George family of New Jersey simultaneously celebrated two incredible academic milestones this week when twin brothers Malik and Miles George graduated as co-valedictorians of Woodbridge High School.
During their high school careers, the brothers both maintained an A average, earned nearly perfect SAT scores, and were offered scholarships from five colleges, including Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
"Seeing them always doing their best to care for us has definitely made a good imprint on us," Malik told ABC 7 of his parents, who celebrated their 20th anniversary on Wednesday. "Whether it's academics, athletics, some form of art, whatever passion someone has, my best advice would be just to explore it and do your best, and the success will come."
Malik and Miles, who share a love for science research, have both chosen to attend MIT together in the fall.
"We worked hard," Miles said. "Every course, studying, paying attention, asking questions. That's one of the most important things, being an active student in our own education."
Hard work always pays off. Congratulations to the George brothers!
