15 sets of twins set to graduate from Valley High School this weekend
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – People attending a high school graduation ceremony this weekend may feel like they're seeing double. "I think it was Kaylee and Kyle Olson's parents who were just like, I see all of these twins in the hall so let's see how many we actually have. They found out we have a ton," said Emily Kacer, a senior at Valley.
Four years ago, the number of sets of twins was sixteen, enough to get the Valley High School class of 2015 into the Guinness Book of World Records.
They only held the record for about a year. In 2013, a fifth grade class in Illinois counted 24 sets of twins.
The students will be a part of the 636 graduating from Valley this Sunday.
As they move on to college, the Goetz twins anticipate having plenty of chances to share their unique story.
"Everybody always asks us that and we say of course we're twins. Then you go on to say we came from a record setting school where we had 16 sets of twins and they say, wow," said Jacob Goetz, a senior at Valley.
One family moved out of the district, so there are now only 15 sets of twins.
