A pair of twin sisters from Milwaukee graduated at the top of their high school class, earning acceptance into 37 different schools.

The twin sisters — Arielle and Arianna Williams — graduated from Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy in Milwaukee. The sisters earned more than $1 million in scholarships for their efforts, according to WISN-TV in Milwaukee.

“We’ve always been those overachievers throughout school, period,” said Arielle, according to CBS-58.

“We never wanted to do the basic,” said Arianna. “We always wanted to go above and do beyond that.”

The twins — who are the first in their family to attend college — will graduate without any student debt.

The sisters chose to attend Marquette University to study nursing.

“They were inspired by their father, who has had pneumonia and suffered a stroke, to work in nursing. The coronavirus pandemic has only solidified their decision to enter the field,” according to USA Today.

The two sisters hope their time as nurses can aid those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.

“With this pandemic going on, I know that nurses are really needed,” Arianna Williams told Good Morning America. “They’re on the front lines saving lives. I want to be apart of that.”
