Gabby Douglas And Zendaya Coleman Graduate From The Same High School

June 12, 2015  |  

It’s graduation season, and two of our favorite teens are officially high school graduates. Olympic gold medalist Gabrielle Douglas, 19,  and actress Zendaya Coleman, 18, received their diplomas from Oak Park High School Thursday.

Shortly after the ceremony, where according to TMZ actor Bob Newhart was the commencement speaker, Douglas rushed to catch a flight.

“Not gonna lie. It was tough to balance school and gym.. but i did it!” she exclaimed on Instagram, “kno when u set ur mind to achieve something u can do it. anddddd yes I’m at the airport gotta get right back to the grind love u guys.”

Coleman also took to the photo sharing site with a celebratory/inspirational message, writing:

“Shout out, not just to all the 2015 grads but to the soon to be! Please remember knowledge is one of the most powerful gifts we have the privilege of receiving…don’t take that for granted. To every soon to be grad, know that you CAN do it! (if I can get through it then anyone can) It’s a long road, so many things will pose as obstacles in your way and at times the end seems further and further away, but please remember the importance of that beautiful mind you have and all the limitless powers you hold. All my love #sorryforgettingdeep.”

According to E! Online, both starlets attended the Oak Park Independent School, where they were provided with flexible schedules to accommodate their work itineraries.

Congrats to these beauties!
