Florida twins have ‘friendly’ sibling rivalry, graduate at top of their class

A friendly rival between twins has led them both to succeed at the top of their class.

The Blanton twins of Florida are seniors at Plant city High School near Tampa, and they have been getting straight A’s since the third grade.

Drew and Bailey Blanton have competed against each other, as well as motivate each other to continue striving for more. They both have already earned an associate’s degree. The duo encouraged each other along the way, while also getting involved in school outside the classroom.

“He’s president and I’m vice president of our FFA chapter,” said Bailey. “Right now, I’m president and he’s vice president of the National Honor Society at school, and you’re president and I’m vice president of the senior class council.”

Now Drew is number one, and Bailey is number two overall of their class.

The twins’ mother said she’s proud of them. She also said they taught her that if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.
