A survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting earlier this year in Parkland, Fla., announced Thursday she has been accepted to Harvard University.

Jaclyn Corin, who graduated from the school this spring following the deadly shooting that killed more than a dozen of her fellow classmates and others in February, posted a screenshot on Twitter of her acceptance letter welcoming Corin as a potential member of the class of 2023.

Corin included the caption "hard work pays off," but did not indicate whether she had made her decision yet whether to attend the prestigious Ivy League school.


Corin, along with several of her classmates, co-founded the nationwide "March For Our Lives" movement for tougher gun restrictions following the February shooting. The movement culminated in simultaneous demonstrations in more than 800 locations involving more than one million participants.

More than 200,000 demonstrators rallied on the National Mall earlier this year as part of the movement, which ultimately failed to see the Trump administration or the GOP-led Congress take action on policy issues such as background checks for gun purchases or a ban on assault weapons like the AR-15.

A commission called by the state of Florida to examine school safety following the shooting recommended arming and training teachers and other faculty members at the school in the use of firearms, a controversial suggestion supported by President TrumpDonald TrumpThe Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Facebook - White House, Dems play blame game over evictions The Memo: Left pins hopes on Nina Turner in Ohio after recent defeats Biden administration to keep Trump-era rule of turning away migrants during pandemic MORE earlier in the year.
