Nearly 2 dozen sets of twins graduate from same middle school class

During a historic ceremony at a middle school Wednesday morning in Needham, Massachusetts, nearly two dozen sets of twins were among the graduating class.

NEEDHAM, Mass. — During a historic ceremony at a middle school Wednesday morning in Needham, Massachusetts, nearly two dozen sets of twins were among the graduating class.

Of about 454 students going to high school from Pollard Middle School, about 46 of those are twins, WFXT reported.

“When it came to everybody’s attention we all realized how disproportionate it was to other years,” Beth Hammerstrand, the mother of graduating twins, told the news outlet. “Someone said that this is almost 10% of their class. I think the national average is 2(%) to 5%.”

Cal Hammerstrand and Owen Hammerstrand are one of the sets of twins who graduated Wednesday.

“I had many twins in some of my classes. I think one time I had six sets of twins in one class,” Cal Hammerstrand said, according to the news outlet. “It was very fun to be in a class with that many twins.”

“It’s very unique seeing how many of our friends turned out to be friends just like us,” Owen Hammerstrand said.

All the sets of twins are expected to attend the same high school in the fall which is Needham High School, according to Cal Hammerstrand and Owen Hammerstrand per WFXT. This means that their high school graduation could become just as historic.
