Chicago twins both headed to college in the fall

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A set of twins from Chicago's Auburn Gresham neighborhood are both attending top tier colleges in the fall.

Kymon and Kemonte Harrington are seniors at Hansberry College Prep.

Kymon turned down a full ride to the University of Chicago so she could attend Haverford College in suburban Philadelphia.

Kemonte is attending the University of Pennsylvania on a full ride.

The twins said their hard work has paid off.

A huge part of the twin's success is their mother. She quit her job eight years ago to solely focus on their education.
