PARKLAND (CBSMiami) – It’s graduation season in South Florida.

On Sunday, the seniors of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School held their commencement ceremony.

It was an especially emotional time for students and family members following the deadly shooting that claimed 17 lives in February.

Four seniors who would have graduated were remembered during the ceremony at the BB&T Center in Sunrise.

Nicholas Dworet, Jaquin Oliver, Meadow Pollack and Carmen Schentrup were among the students and teachers murdered on Valentine’s Day.

The school presented diplomas to family members of the slain students.

Meadow Pollack’s brother, Hunter, posted on social media Sunday that he would be accepting his sister’s diploma.

Additionally, actor, comedian and late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon appeared at the ceremony and addressed the students.

Fallon told the students that their collective voice was being heard across the world.
