Quadruplets Get Accepted To Ivy League Schools Harvard And Yale
Four Liberty Township, Ohio brothers, Nigel, Zach, Aaron, and Nick Wade, known as the “Wade Quads” are now being called, the “Ivy League Quads” now that they have all been accepted to two top elite colleges in the country.
The 18-year-olds were at track practice when the emails from Yale and Harvard University popped up on their phones. When their parents got the word they had been accepted, they were overwhelmed.
There was no surprise the boys would have a bright future ahead of them. Being taught the importance of education, the boys never neglected their studies while playing sports such as football and soccer. Their father Darrin, the “Wade” of the household, hasn’t checked their grades since they were in 3rd grade. He has full confidence in his son’s abilities because of resources and support they were given along with hard work. The lowest grade the boys ever received in school was a ‘B’.
When it comes to raising four successful sons, Kim and Darrin said there’s no secret in the sauce. Kim, a junior high school principal and Darrin an engineer with General Electric says the key is consistency. The Lakota East High School seniors not only have Harvard and Yale to choose from. Nigel was accepted into John Hopkins and Vanderbilt Universities. Aaron got into Stanford along with Nick, was also accepted by Duke and Georgetown. Zach also has Cornell as an option. While they are stilling deciding on which school they will pick to begin their next chapter, the individual essays they submitted with their college applications show they are ready to be different.
