When Kristi Grant’s father was diagnosed with cancer in 2008, she decided it was time to go to college and earn her four-year degree.
Sunday, nearly four years later, Grant walked across stage at the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center to accept her diploma for a Bachelor’s of Science degree in middle grades education from Western Kentucky University. Her father was watching in the crowd.
“I feel wonderful,” said Grant, 41, of Hodgenville. “I feel like I’m finally doing something with my life.”
