Sioux Falls seniors celebrate graduation, Sunday

Posted: Updated:

Sunday was a big day for the Sioux Falls School District as the senior class of 2013 celebrated graduation.

All three graduations were held Sunday. We stopped at the Roosevelt High School ceremony where more than 530 grads accepted their diplomas. Washing and Lincoln High Schools also celebrated, Sunday. More than 1,500 total graduates from the Sioux Falls Public Schools.

We caught up with a few seniors who say the day is very bittersweet.

"I'm sad. It's been no more high school but you move on to bigger and better things," senior Jamie Krsak said.

"I'm really excited to graduate because I want to start a new chapter of my life. I'm excited to live how I want to do it, with the support of my family, it's going to be a fun time," senior Lauren Kunz said.
