According to a report on ABC News, SHS student Luke Foreman and his twin sister, Meghan, knowing that there was a preponderance of twins in their graduating class, one day decided to count them up.

“Right from the beginning I knew we had a lot of twins in our grade, but it didn’t strike me as unusual until I counted all the twins we had," Foreman said in the report.
