Associate degrees

Twins graduating with diplomas associated with Corpus Christi

ROBSTOWN, Texas – Hard work is what it takes to earn a college degree.

“A lot of hard work, a lot of countless hours to study. It really wasn’t easy,” said Caleb Morales. “We had to give up our summers to go to summer school. It’s definitely not easy,” said Magen Morales.

For these twins from Robstown Early College High School, finishing high school with an associate’s degree was no easy task, but they could count on each other to stay motivated.

“I would definitely say she pushed me harder than anything, but we definitely pushed each other to make sure we stayed at the same level. Work our best, yeah,” said Caleb Morales.

Caleb’s specialty is premedical technology and he plans to become a medical technologist. As for Magen, she wants her major in business administration to make her grandfather’s dream come true; open a tax return service business.

“Well he passed away a few years ago so I loved him very much and want to fulfill his dream to make him happy,” she said.

Their first college program in Robstown was completely free and worth $ 60,000 each, but the knowledge they take with them is invaluable. The Morales twins plan to continue their education at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi or Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
