    Other than their altered hair color, you won't find many differences between the two.

    "We are still living together," Kayleigh Brown said. "We will probably live together until one of us gets married."

    "We aren't that competitive," her sister said. "Well, I'm not that competitive. She's a little competitive."

    The sisters said Friday's graduation ceremony magnifies their bond. Kayleigh Brown received a nursing degree and Kandace Brown earned a psychology degree.

    "Their long-term plan is that they are going to have a clinic together, so I'm not saying this is going to be a forever, separate thing," said David Brown, their father.

    Both sisters said this day would not be possible if it weren't for the other twin.

    Their father said his daughters worked hard for their diplomas. Both earned top honors while putting themselves through school.

    "They passed up football games," he said. "They passed up after-school activities. They passed up prom because they were studying."
