CRESTVIEW — Brandi Terrell has mixed emotions about her daughter’s graduation.

"It’s a happy, joyous time, but it’s also a sad, changing time," the mother of Crestview High School valedictorian Jayde Terrell said.

Though she is happy to see her only daughter graduate, she said the household won't be the same after Jayde begins classes at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

"There is going to be a lot of quiet days and quiet nights at our house," Brandi said.

Crestview High School’s Friday night graduation ceremony at Jack Foster Stadium was “bittersweet” for many parents and students.

Guidance counselor Keitha Holloway’s daughter, Kelsey Perez, 18, is among 274 students receiving a diploma, out of 355 seniors enrolled at the beginning of the year.
