  • A double take for Concord

    HILLSVILLE –– Sydney and Samuel Haynes didn’t let the fact that they are twins sway their thinking when it came to making a college choice. Prepared to go their separate ways post-high school, the two nonetheless will end up together at Concord University, and that decision will pay off in at least one way.

    “We can have just one car and not have to spend a lot of money on gas,” Sydney Haynes said with a smile. “And I’ll know someone.”
