Two Horry County seniors have a perfect attendance record. Green Sea Floyds High's Jasmine Alexia Johnson and Sloan Elizabeth Blair didn't miss a single day of school for 12 years!
They're two of only 72 students in South Carolina who accomplished that goal. About 44,000 students will receive diplomas statewide this school year.
Also getting the perfect attendance honors - fraternal twins Alexis and Asante Dawkins, who will graduate Friday from Boiling Springs High School in Spartanburg 2.
They are the fourth set of twins since 2005 to graduate with perfect attendance.
For the second consecutive year, Dorman High in Spartanburg 6 had the most students in a single school with perfect attendance.
This year, six seniors never missed a day.
The education agency has recognized students with perfect attendance since 1979.
