Vincent and Porter twins

Transylvania’s campus was home to a pair of twins the past four years who share an uncommon devotion to one another.

Alyson (left in photo) and Caitlyn Vincent are from Winchester, Ky., and have been practically inseparable all through their school years, including their Transylvania time. Both majored in education, graduated with program and Latin honors, and will teach in Montgomery County, Ky., this fall, Alyson at Montgomery County Intermediate School (fifth grade) and Caitlyn at Mapleton Elementary School (first grade). Both are also national champion cloggers, as a team and as individuals.

Joseph (left in photo) and Stephen Porter are from Madisonville, Ky. They roomed together during their Transylvania years, were members of the swimming and diving team, and both graduated with a biology degree, earning program and Latin honors. Their togetherness continues this fall as both will be enrolled in the University of Louisville College of Medicine.

Kelsey McComas, a biology major from Ashland, Ky., has been active in community service since her high school days and continued that dedication while at Transylvania. She volunteered at her community’s hospice, took a Transylvania service learning course in the Philippines, and helped raise funds for the Children’s Miracle Network. She left June 20 on a 10-week, 3,700-mile cross-country bicycle ride as part of the Bike and Build non-profit program that will take her to Vancouver, British Columbia, helping to build affordable housing for deserving citizens along the way.
