The Charles family of four from St. Lucia made history on July 1, 2018 at University of the Southern Caribbean 85th Commencement ceremony.

They became the largest number from a single family to graduate together — mother, father and two sons. The daughter remains an undergraduate.

The family of four successfully completed their bachelor’s degrees and are now officially USC alumni.

Here is their story:
