Kevin and Jessica McBride, both veterans, are hardworking parents who graduated college together, earning their associate degrees from Wright College. In order to fit school into their schedules while raising their two children, Kevin and Jessica took classes on alternate days. To motivate one another, they engaged in a friendly competition to see who could achieve a higher grade point average. It was a draw: both McBrides earned a 4.0 GPA. However, Jessica earned an additional distinction – she represented Wright as the college’s Salutatorian, carrying the Wright College flag before her fellow graduates – including husband Kevin – and her children. Both Kevin and Jessica plan to attend Northeastern Illinois University where Kevin will be pursuing a bachelor’s degree in environmental sciences and where Jessica is planning to study to become a high school English teacher and eventually a college English professor.
