The world's first surviving septuplets are now high school graduates.
The McCaughey septuplets — Alexis, Brandon, Joel, Kelsey, Kenny, Natalie and Nathan — graduated from Carlisle High School in Carlisle, Iowa, on Sunday.
Kelsey, Nathan, Natalie and Joel will be attending Hannibal-LaGrange University in Hannibal, Missouri, which offered full scholarships to all the McCaugheys in 1997, the year they were born.

Kenny and Alexis will live at home and attend Des Moines Area Community College, where Alexis will major in early childhood education and Kenny will work toward a degree in building trades/construction.
"We have been around each other the past 18 years," Kenny told NBC News. "I am ready to be on my way, and I think everyone else is, too."
