KENNEWICK, Wash.-- About four thousand people packed into the Toyota Center in Kennewick Saturday for Kamiakin High School's graduation.

The class of 2012 graduated three hundred seventy-one students. There were three valedictorians in the class and each of them plans to attend the University of Washington.

Students say they're very excited to move on to college. One graduate, Rachel Wescott, says everyone is in good spirits about the next chapter in their lives.

"Everybody is really happy for each other. We're all congratulating each other. We all knew we could do it and we're really excited. It's just a really good environment," says Wescott.

Southridge High School and Kennewick High School also had their graduations at the Toyota Center Saturday.
