MOTHER AND DAUGHTER GRADUATE TOGETHER

A mother and daughter graduated from Florida International University together on May 2nd. Gigi Bolt, who had her daughter when she was just 16 and is now 38, received her master’s degree in public administration, and 22-year-old Katherine Bolt got her bachelor's degree in political science. Gigi started going for her Master's degree in 2015, but she and Katherine never thought they would graduate together, since Gigi was only going part-time at night because she worked full-time. When they found out in last fall that they'd be getting their degrees together, they asked if Gigi's name could be the last name called for the Master’s degrees and Katherine's could be the first name called for Bachelor’s degrees so they could walk one after the other. The school agreed, and even sat the mother and daughter together during the ceremony.
