Highest congratulations to her and her parents!

".......Not only did she earn a 4.0 grade point average with a major in biological science and minor in Catholic social teaching while being involved in a number of activities on campus, but she also sounds well-grounded, gracious, and humble, crediting her success to her parents and teachers. Her dad and mom, a doctor and nurse who work with low-income patients in Gary, Indiana, also inspired her to use her brains for others.

From the Chicago Tribune: "My mom grew up in a Gary housing project at a time when the world was saying, 'You're a black woman and there's so little you can do,'" Washington said. "Both of my parents were in situations where poverty was real. They were the underdogs, but they still fought and worked hard to change their lives and the lives of others........"
