CANFIELD, Ohio — The graduating class at an Ohio high school features a multitude of multiples: 10 sets of twins and one set of triplets.
They make up 8 percent of the 282 seniors receiving their diplomas from Canfield High School on June 12.
Principal John Tullio tells The Vindicator of Youngstown the 23 students from multiple births all have come up from kindergarten in the Canfield school district, about 60 miles southeast of Cleveland.
Some will attend college with their siblings. Anthony Ferraro tells the newspaper it would be a big deal to separate from twin Jesse, who calls his brother "a permanent friend."
Alex and Christian Syrianoudis are the only set of twins who are identical, and they are splitting up for college. Alex says it will be a growing experience.
