Family plan: Two mothers follow daughters' footsteps in becoming SRU students
Mother knows best, as the saying goes, but that doesn't mean she can't learn a thing or two by following in her daughter's footsteps. Case in point: a pair of mothers of students from Slippery Rock University's philanthropy and nonprofit management program decided to join their daughters and earn the same degree.
Brenda Matthews, a sophomore interdisciplinary programs major from Suwanee, Georgia, enrolled at SRU after seeing the success of her daughter, Nicole Matthews, a senior management major, who transferred to SRU in 2016. Meanwhile, Kimberly Almedina, a junior interdisciplinary programs major from Tulsa, transferred to the University after her daughter, Maria Almedina, graduated with a degree in interdisciplinary programs in December 2018.
