Carmel High School Wants to Break World Record for Most Sets of Twins

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – The Senior class at Carmel High School has everyone seeing double. The graduating class has 17 sets of twins and they're hoping that one fact alone will push them into the Guinness Book of World Records.

These Carmel High Students, in Carmel, Ind., hope to break the world record for the most twins in one graduating class. Two by two, there are 17 sets of twins in all.

Identical twins Morgan and Caroline Ward consider it a huge honor. "I have read the book so it is amazing just to be offered this chance to be in it,” said one of the twins.

The current Guinness world record for twins in a graduating class is 16. Twins Connor and Katelyn Thomas say classmates who find out they share a birthday simply think it's cool. But nothing will be cooler than actually being a part of history together. "Twin interviews we are together, car rides to school we are together...together,” they said.

Beating the world record is an easy task in fact Guinness sent Carmel High School this list of evidence required to beat the record.

"Copies of photo IDs, birth certificates, any name change forms if their names have changed over the years,” said Wesley Drew, Carmel World History Teacher.

The students will even send Guinness family photos including those hard-to-distinguish baby pictures. "I think we are physically looking less alike but our personalities are different,” said Kenwyn & Kendall Pfister.

Guinness wants every "T" crossed and "I" dotted in order to grant Carmel High School the world record so it will be weeks before the twins learn if they will make the history book that could eventually end up in the school library.
