Kristie and Kirstie Bronner are identical twins who have made history as the first ever sister, co-valedictorians at famed HBCU Spelman College.

Kristie (left) and Kirstie Bronner finished their undergraduate degrees with identical grade-point averages. According to Kirstie Bronner, who spoke with WSB-TV, “Before we came to college, we prayed that we would keep 4.0′s all the way through, but I don’t think we ever really expected it.”

Apparently the “Bronner Twins'” sibling bond was strong enough to propel each other into the record books. As they shared the same major, the young women fueled each other, as evidenced by their noteworthy standing at Spelman, “You can have strength together,” Kristie points out.

“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.

The music graduates, who are prepared to walk across the stage in a few days, plan to join the youth ministry at their father’s church, Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral. They want record a youth contemporary gospel album. They said that their collegiate experience taught them valuable life lessons.

“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 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.”

Take a look as the women talk about their experience on video below.
