SHEPHERDSVILLE - After being home-schooled her entire life, Leah Pugh decided the next step in her education was to obtain her GED certificate.
“I wasn’t sure how people would look at my home schooling degree,” the 21-year-old Mount Washington resident said.
Pugh passed the GED exam in April 2011, went on to graduate from Jefferson Community and Technical College in May 2013 and now works at Kohl’s.
“I wanted to prove to myself I could succeed outside the home schooling sector,” she said.
