PERRY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – For Dr. Argene Claxton there's only one way to describe the Lineberger brothers, loud.
"They made their presence known wherever they were," Claxton said.
The agriculture educator at Perry High School has been teaching the four surviving quintuplets their entire lives. After four years at the high school, he is now prepared for some quiet without the "quads". The brothers graduate from Perry High School on Saturday.
"Its bitter sweet," said Ben Lineberger.
Hunter, Ben, Luke and Tal Lineberger were born on March 6, 1995. From the moment they were out the womb, it's been a whirlwind.
"It's like a party everyday," Ben said.
Almost everyone in Perry knows the "boys". The Linebergers are class officers, athletes, volunteers and office workers at Perry High School. All of their classmates know them by name.
The brothers are four surviving quintuplets. Their other brother Zach died at birth. He's buried along with their mother who died in 2008.
"She had a heart attack when we were at school," Luke said.
Her death has been easier to endure with the support of their siblings and the school. Dr. Claxton his more like another father than a teacher to Linebergers.
"It didn't feel like we had to step up, we just did," Claxton said.
Now four years later, the four desks in his classroom will be empty. Hunter, Ben and Luke will be going to Abraham Baldwin Agriculture College in Tifton and Tal will be attending Valdosta State.
"They are rambunctious, full of energy," Claxton said tearing up, "I wish I had so much energy. As they've grown, you can tell their parents taught them well."
