The proud parents took to Instagram to boast about their daughter and her achievements. 

Melinda’s post described the 27-year-old equestrian’s innate curiosity, “Even when she was very young, she was especially interested in what I was learning through working in global health.”

Melinda also recounted Jennifer’s “particular focus on children” and what “she could do to help them.”

“So I’m very proud — and not at all surprised — that this curious and compassionate little girl is now a brilliant and compassionate woman with a new master’s degree in public health,” Melinda continued. 

“Jenn, congratulations! You have a heart and mind that will change the world. I can’t wait to see what you do.”

Bill shared a series of pictures on Instagram of himself with Jennifer, proudly congratulating her with the caption, “I’m so proud of you, Jenn. You have grown and learned so much over the years. I can’t wait to see what you accomplish next. Congratulations!”
