Teen will be first in family going to college

The Paducah Sun, April 24, 2017

Going to college has a little more meaning for Landon Rutherford than it might for most students.

If all goes to plan, the Paducah Tilghman High School senior will be the first in his family to gain a college degree.

"My parents drive me," Rutherford said. "Ever since I was a little kid, they've really told me to push hard during school."

Rutherford did what he was told. Throughout high school, he has maintained a 4.1 grade-point average, which helped him get a spot in the Governor's Scholar Program at Morehead State University last summer. Learning that he had been selected came as a surprise.

"I wasn't expecting to get that," he said. "It was worth a shot, and I got accepted."

Governor's Scholar taught Rutherford a lot about what to expect in college.
