Three Generations of Inspiring Women in One Family Graduate at the Same Time



When LaWanda Flennoy organized a photo shoot to celebrate her daughters’ and granddaughter’s graduations this year, the girls insisted she be part of it.

Flennoy’s two older daughters graduated from college this month. Amari graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a degree in industrial engineering. Paris graduated from Chicago State University with a degree in public relations. Her youngest finished high school and her granddaughter graduated from kindergarten. But grandma was also celebrating her big accomplishment this spring. Her own college graduation.

“I have always taught my girls that they can be whatever they want to be. A solid education and unwavering belief in themselves are great foundations for success,” Flennoy told HuffPost. “I hope people realize that with determination, focus and a good support system, anyone can meet their potential.”

“It’s a huge accomplishment for one person to graduate, let alone five total AND three generations,” he explained. “I want parents to encourage their kids to stay in school, continue their education and never give up WHILE doing the same thing. Everyone loved this photo; I want everyone to see this photo and say, ‘This photo is an inspiration; this is a beautiful family.’”
