CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Jordan Smith and Allison Caines say they have done everything together, and graduating will be no different.
Although there is a two-year age difference, Smith said she and her sister will both now be the first in their family to earn a degree.
It's a moment both say they have been looking forward to for awhile, and now they get to share it together.
"I've been going to school since I was 5 years old," Allison Caines said. "This feeling is so amazing."
The winter commencement at Southeast Missouri State University is set for 2 p.m. Saturday in the Show Me Center.
"I've always looked up to her and to get to do this together is going to be really special," Jordan Smith said.
