Adventist triplets, first to graduate from Dartmouth

By Alexander Carpenter
    “Olivia Willis-Henry will occupy a seat of honor at the June 10 Dartmouth College commencement:
at the side of Susan Wright, wife of Dartmouth’s President James
Wright. It isn’t every parent that gets to view commencement from such
a choice spot; but, then, it isn’t every parent who has three children
graduating at the same time.    Willis-Henry is the mother of Ashley, Brittany and Courtney Henry, 21,
of San Diego, Ca., the first set of triplets to attend Dartmouth
College. While numerous sets of twins and individual members of
triplets have attended the college, Dartmouth history records no other
full set of triplet students before the Henry sisters.    The girls, who are identical siblings, came to Dartmouth after an
education at a small, Seventh Day Adventist (sic) parochial school, including
a 200 student-high school with a senior class of 60 students from which
they graduated as co-valedictorians.”

    And I like this quote from one of those scary Ivy League Religion Professors.”The sisters said they have tried to follow the advice given them in
their freshman year by Religion Professor Ronald Green, who was
Brittany’s adviser, officially, but became a friend to the girls and
their mother. ‘He encouraged us to take advantage of what Dartmouth has
to offer and, at the same time, not to stray too far from what we
know,’ Brittany said.”
