Associated Press

WASILLA, Alaska – Gov. Sarah Palin’s oldest daughter is now a high school graduate.

Palin family spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton says 18-year-old Bristol Palin received her Wasilla High School diploma Thursday night at a ceremony with her fellow classmates.

The teenager gave birth in December to son Tripp.

She is now a teen ambassador for the Candie’s Foundation, an organization devoted to educating teenagers about the consequences of teen pregnancy.

Her mother was picked as the GOP vice presidential nominee in August and announced the pregnancy shortly after.
