Selma twins chase their dreams to bright future  

BY BRAD FISHER | Selma Sun Staff 

Always chase your dreams. Never give up on yourself.  

That’s been the philosophy of Ryan and Bryan Hurt, identical twins from Selma who just graduated from The University of Alabama with degrees in civil engineering. Their paths took them from Selma High School to Wallace Community College Selma to UA. For Bryan, the next step is Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida, where he will be a civilian engineer working on a variety of projects as the base rebuilds from damage caused by Hurricane Michael. Ryan will be moving to Houston, where he will work for transportation engineering firm RPS Group.  

Engineering is a notoriously difficult college major, and Ryan said they worked hard to get to where they are. In an early engineering class, Ryan said he and Bryan were making failing marks on tests, but they doubled and tripled their study time, and ended the semester at the top of the class. The professor recognized them in class for their efforts.
