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."
