Pa. teen has perfect attendance for 13 years
KENNETT SQUARE, Pa. (AP) - June 14, 2012 (WPVI) -- A suburban Philadelphia teenager has earned a gold star for perfect school attendance - for 13 years.
Newly minted Unionville High School graduate Brian Boyle didn't miss a day in his entire student career.
Unionville-Chadds Ford Superintendent John Sanville honored Boyle with a gold star trophy earlier this week.
Sanville joked that he's only been in the district for five years and doesn't have perfect attendance.
Boyle attributes his impeccable record in part to taking vitamins and trying not to get sick.
It's not clear if Boyle will try to extend his streak at the University of North Carolina in Wilmington, where he's headed this fall to study business.
