GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - District 51 high school seniors donned their caps and gowns as they briefly returned to the elementary schools where they started their grade school careers.

One school that the graduates went to today was Chipeta Elementary School in Grand Junction.

Eight seniors met with elementary students and gave them advice, and encouraged them to work hard and follow their dreams.

A mix of students from Grand Junction and Central High School also shared with the younger students what their plans were for the future, such as studying geology at Colorado Mesa University, going to Denver for a psychology degree, and becoming marine biologist in Hawaii.
