Tilghman teen eyes international relations career

by Kelly Farrell
The Paducah Sun
January 4, 2020
Used with permission.

Paducah Tilghman High School senior Leah Tyrrell has a passion for global politics and looks to explore a career in international relations.

“I really would love one day to be able to work with the government and be able to see the ‘behind the scenes’ of, basically, like the news,” she said. “That’s always been really interesting to me and, like, the inner workings of different countries, the politics in different countries, the cultures, the economy and just how all that fits together and makes the world work the way it is.”
The 17-year-old student said she would like to work for the FBI — perhaps in a capacity that investigates international or terroristic threats, crimes committed by diplomats on American soil and other types of issues and concerns. She’s interested in chemistry, too, and that’s another possible major for Tyrrell.

Dear PPS parents and students,

We are looking forward to welcoming our students back for in-person instruction. However, since McCracken County continues to be a “red county” based on its COVID-19 incidence rate, our district will have to use the most restrictive schedule to comply with the state “Healthy at Schools” plan and the recommendations in Governor Beshear’s executive order issued on December 18. 

Paducah Public Schools will begin our spring semester on Monday, January 4, 2021.
