4 of 7 McCaughey septuplets starting college in Hannibal



On Nov. 19, 1997, the McCaughey septuplets entered the world together. On Thursday, four of the seven moved into dorms on the Hannibal-LaGrange University campus.

Joel, Nathan, Kelsey and Natalie came to HLGU after their parents, Kenny and Bobbi McCaughey, were offered scholarships in behalf of their newborns to one day come to Hannibal for a college education.

“The school had offered to each one of the kids the same thing. Of course it was their option and we're thankful four of them did choose to come here,” said Kenny during a press conference Thursday afternoon at HLGU.

Two of the septuplets, Alexis and Kenneth, chose to stay close to home and attend Des Moines Area Community College. Brandon has joined the military.

1. For reference



Several of them do have medical issues and the neo-natal intensive care procedures have changed significantly since they were born.

2. Yes,

Nathan and Alexis both have cerebral palsy as well as speech and cognitive difficulties. Alexis also uses a walker. It is still an achievement that six of the seven are pursuing college educations while Brandon is entering the Army.
