Some graduating seniors at a high school in Syracuse, N.Y. made history by simply walking across the stage.

Twenty-four graduating seniors from Baker High School have been accepted into the Guiness Book of World Records. This year, the school graduated 12 sets of twins. They broke the previous record of 10 twins in one graduating class.

"We just found out today and I'm ecstatic. This is history!,"graduating twin Amanda Wolgemuth said.

"I think it will be pretty cool opening up that book and seeing our names in there with everyone from our graduating class," said Amanda's brother and graduating twin Zachary Wolgemuth.

Twins are a common theme in this school - even their principal can relate.

"Quite a few years ago, I graduated from my own high school with a twin. It's a pretty unique and special time for twins. It's a great moment to share with someone so close to you," Baker High School Principal Joseph Debarbieri said.

Four out of the 12 sets of twins have already made plans to attend the same college as their sibling.
