Theyre sisters, co-valedictorians and twins
Identical twin sisters have achieved an identical distinction at a northern Nevada high school: They're co-valedictorians.
Gabby and Maria Munoz-Robles received the honor by each racking up 4.54 grade point averages at Douglas High School in Minden, about 40 miles south of Reno.
If she got the A, its like I got the A, too, Maria told the Record-Courier newspaper. A lot of people want us to be separate, but we enjoy it. When we give each other hugs, I feel like Im hugging myself.
The sisters both plan to attend Notre Dame in the fall and major in biomedical engineering. But the university is not allowing them to live in the same dormitory.
I told them I was OK with it," Maria said. "But we share everything from straighteners to clothes. So now we have to get our own stuff.
The sisters say that they eventually want to attend graduate school and conduct cancer and arthritis research together.
Both sisters have been involved in track, cross country and band at Douglas High.
It's the first time in the school's history that twins have been co-valedictorians.
Critical thinking challenge: Why hasnt this happened before at Douglas High?
