Mother and daughter graduate together

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A mother and daughter who teamed up to go back to college in Jacksonville now have degrees of their own.
   Karen Baker and daughter Latisha Robinson graduated from Edward Waters College on Saturday with a business administration degree.
   The 58-year-old Baker and 38-year-old Robinson said going back to school was difficult. Baker told the Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/15ZuyaF ) she had some trouble getting used to "all that college stuff" after so many years.
   She and Robinson not only encouraged each other to make sure their assignments were completed. They also competed for the best grade. Baker ended up finishing as the salutatorian of the college's entire 2013 class.
