Double diplomas: 2 NY high schools graduate 19 sets of twins; 1 school sets Guinness record
BALDWINSVILLE, N.Y. – BALDWINSVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — People attending graduation ceremonies at a pair of upstate New York high schools couldn't be blamed for thinking they were seeing double.
Twelve sets of twins graduated from Baker High School in Baldwinsville on Sunday, the same day seven sets of twins received their diplomas during ceremonies at nearby Jamesville-DeWitt High School in the Syracuse area.
Representatives from Guinness World Records say Baker High's graduating class with 12 sets of twins breaks the previous record of 10, set by a Massachusetts high school in 2007.
Principal Joseph DeBarbieri, himself a twin, says four of his school's sets of twins plan to attend the same college as their sibling.
