Triplets’ Graduation Makes Hometown Paper

The Gainesville Times in Gainesville, Ga., reports on hometown triplets, Jaclyn, Jessica and Jocelyn Kerr, recent graduates of Belmont University.

The Kerrs, who have no other children, moved to their Pine Vale Road home about one year ago from Kentucky, where the daughters lived when they decided to attend Belmont, all on scholarships. At the time, the triplets also entertained scholarship offers from Tennessee Tech and Western Kentucky University. “Belmont was their fantasy place to go, so when the doors opened up for all of them to go there, that’s the place they chose,” Kerr said.
The siblings’ strikingly similar lives don’t end there. All three competed on the high school swim team, with each sibling cultivating a favorite stroke. They were members of the Belmont Bruins Dance Team. They received Dean’s List recognition all eight semesters and are members of Sigma Beta Delta, Alpha Chi and Beta Gamma Sigma honor societies. Also, each received the Massey School of Business Outstanding Student of the Year award for 2003.
