"I don't know what to think I just it's amazing. I'm just blessed, blessed to have this," said Hughes.
"We had 23 school districts that participated over 700 students said I want to have perfect attendance. What a great thing that 700 kids said I'll make it perfect attendance my senior year," said Paul Atkinson, of Atkinson Toyota Scion.
