COLCHESTER, Conn. (AP) _ Identical twin sisters have earned top-student honors in the graduating class at Bacon Academy in Colchester.

Megan Ganley is the valedictorian in the class, which holds its commencement exercises on Monday evening.  Sister Shannon is the salutatorian.

Megan tells the Norwich Bulletin ( ) that the two have both succeeded academically because they help and motivate each other.

Both dance and are in the school’s band, and take some of the same advanced placement courses.

But the two won’t be attending the same college.  Megan is enrolling at Boston College, while her sister will be attending Holy Cross.
