Madelyn & KellanWhile post-commencement life can be uncertain for many graduating college students, Madelyn Di Orio and Kellan Barry made big plans before this school year ever began. The third-year physical therapy students in The University of North Texas Health Science Center’s School of Health Professions will tie the knot in June.

The pair met as freshman as undergraduates at Texas Lutheran University in Seguin, Texas, and both knew long before graduation they wanted to pursue physical therapy as a career. They applied to the same PT schools in hopes that could stay together. For Di Orio, a San Antonio native, HSC was her first choice. Barry, who was born and raised in Seguin, also wanted to come to Fort Worth, though he was more of a mind to start his PT education as soon as possible.
