Jennifer Crawley's family had a dilemma on its hands: How to be two places at once. Their twin daughters would hit their academic peaks in separate cities on the same day. Their solution was to see if the women could graduate together on the same stage on May 16, 2009. Trinity University in San Antonio worked with officials at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota to pull it off. President John Brazil and the commencement committee agreed to the arrangement and Registrar Fred Rodriguez was sent Margaret Crawley's diploma prior to commencement. After Jennifer (pictured above, on the right) received her diploma from Dr. Brazil, VP for Academic Affairs Michael Fischer announced that Megan (pictured at left) would be awarded her degree as well. It was a special moment for the two schools, the two seniors, and especially, the Crawley family.
