High school seniors remember classmate who died while kayaking

A bittersweet graduation day for some Kentucky high school seniors.

The Southwestern High School class of 2010 graduated today without classmate John Tyler Pickerell. He died last month while kayaking on Lake Cumberland in Pulaski County. The graduates say it was tough walking across the stage without their friend. They paid tribute to Pickerell by carrying carnations in his honor and wearing special pins.
