Orphaned Triplets Receive the Best Graduation Surprise

Published

Graduating from high school can be a difficult feat; but for the Yeckes triplets named Sierra, Kassidy and Haley, it was an almost impossible accomplishment. Their mother passed away when they were mere three-month-old babies, and their father went to prison when they were in sixth grade. The sisters were then left in the care of their grandmother, who wasn’t exactly an ideal choice since she neglected their basic rights to proper food and schooling.

Even when their father was eventually released, they still lived like orphans and had to learn to fend for themselves in terms of food, transportation and clothing. The determined sisters recalled: “He started leaving us for weeks, months, at a time. We were left to kind of take care of ourselves. Our house got shot up. Three bullets, and our dad wasn’t there at the time.”

Owing to their perseverance and their supportive teachers, the triplets have defied all odds and have graduated from Valley High School in Las Vegas. Haley shared: “It’s astonishing! I am so happy! I wasn’t [sure] I would ever make it this far, but now that I have, I’m just like, let’s do it! I didn’t even think I’d make to 18, and now I’m here and I’m just so happy.”

And on their special day, they received more than just their diplomas. The FOX5 Surprise Squad happened to be there to give them college fund amounting to $15,000 from Albertson’s, where they have been working to buy basic necessities. Three brand new cars were also presented by the owner of United Nissan himself, Don Foreman, who told them: “We just wanted to congratulate you on your graduation… and these three cars are yours!”

Haley revealed: “I’ve seen this stuff on TV all the time, but I’ve never seen this happen before. I’m like, ‘This is real… And it happened to me.’”

Sierra plans on becoming a teacher, Kassidy wants to become a nurse, while Haley sees a career in social work.
