Three brothers will be the first set of triplets to ever graduate from Louisiana’s Grambling State University as Stevie, Steven and Stephon Wilson, natives of Winnfield graduate from Grambling State University.

The brothers will walk on April 15, feeling accomplished in their own right as trailblazers for their hometown community.

“[When we graduated high school] we saw it. When we all left [for college] they were very, very emotional but us graduating and actually separating – I think it’s going to be bittersweet, but they’ll be happy because we’ll be third [generation] legacy,” said Steven. “Our motto when we left Winnfield was to set the standard for other African American minorities in our town. [For] so many young students in Winnfield, they don’t have that role model to look up to. We set that standard to let them know it can be done.”
