LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Hundreds of students walked across a stage Friday night during a commencement ceremony at Male High School.

Those who took part in the ceremony were adult and continuing education students who earned their GEDs.

Lieutenant Governor Jerry Abramson spoke at the event and told all of the graduates to be proud of what they had accomplished and to keep learning.

"We need them in the workforce, we need them to continue to train their skills and to ultimately hone those skills and continue their education," he said.

Devreisha Britt was one of the students honored and said her child motivated her, "I wanted to make my life better than what it was. I want to go to college, I just had a child. I want to make my life better than what it was."
