Milligan College, Tenn. -

165 graduates walked across the stage Saturday at Milligan College.

Among the graduates were a set of twins whose athletic abilities left a mark on Milligan sports.

Ahmee and Kayla Kelly went to Milligan to play tennis. They shared the tennis court, a room, and they both earned their degrees in Business Administration Saturday.

Ahmee and Kayla Kelly told News Channel 11 that their time at Milligan together is something they will treasure for the rest of their lives.

"We've matured in so many aspects of our lives spiritually together and that's something I will cherish forever so it's been a great journey with her and I wouldn't have wanted to spend it with anyone else,” said Kayla.

Another special pair to the Milligan family are the Greer’s

Saturday Milligan College President Bill Greer presented his son Jeremy Greer with his degree. Both father and son said this was a special moment for them.

"To see Jeremy walk across the stage actually 30 years to the day that his mom graduated from Milligan in 1984, its exciting on all kinds of levels,” said President Greer.

Both the Greer’s and the Kelly’s said their time at Milligan is priceless.
