DONALDSONVILLE, La. (WAFB) - Madison and Mason Zeringue, who are twins, have graduated from Ascension Catholic High School as valedictorian and salutatorian.

Their mom, Aimee Zeringue Monaco, says Madison plans to go to Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond on a full scholarship, while Mason is headed to Louisiana State University Eunice to play baseball, also on a full ride.

Aimee says she raised the twins as a single parent and is incredibly proud of them.
