A friendly rivalry kept two Buford High School seniors going to school each and every day.
It wasn't to achieve the highest grade point average or the best scores in sports.
It was literally to come to school each day.
Buford High's Joseph Morris and James Ellis, both 18, are the only two 2008 graduates in the Lancaster County School District to achieve 12 years of perfect attendance.
"My mother made me go to school," said Morris, the son of Libby and Joey Morris. "So I can't take full credit for it. I don't get sick."
