MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- Four sisters are preparing to start a new chapter their lives, the next step in their journey together.

Holly, Jordan, Kasey and Mallory Morris marked one of life’s milestones on Sunday, receiving their high school diplomas as they proudly stood side by side.

Their family is reminiscing on how far the girls have come. They are part of the first set of quintuplets born in Kansas.

"All five of us put together when we were born, we were all under 7 pounds so that made us a pound and a few ounces each when we were born," Holly said.

The tiny premature babies were born at Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka and the media has followed along with some of their milestones throughout their childhood. They are now young women, looking ahead to the future.

As the surviving quints graduated from Manhattan High School, they knew they had someone watching over them- their brother Evan who passed away several weeks after he was born.

"We wish we could celebrate it with him but we know he’s here. He’s looking out for us," Holly said.

The sisters have always been together growing up, forming a bond unlike any other, and now they’re getting ready to pursue their own paths.

"We are all best friends and we are all very individual. We all have our own talents and hobbies that we like to do and our family is very supportive of us," Holly told WIBW.

As one door closes on high school and another opens, the quintuplets will continue to be there for one another every step of the way, always finding strength in one another.
