LIFE As A Paducah TEEN!

2016 March/April

These are the best days of your life.

 

Parents proclaim it. Teachers tell students to take stock of it. Coaches hearken back to it on playing fields from the past. Advisors hasten to help college applicants appreciate it. Teens hear it from every side.

 

Every generation faces it—this idea that life just can’t get any better than spending four years making friendships that will last a lifetime, learning about yourself and the world you inhabit, making plans for a future that seems full of potential, and having the chance to delve into a myriad of personal possibilities that provide unlimited opportunity, if only for these four special years of high school.

 

In this edition of PADUCAH LIFE Magazine we decided to test the theory. And if our investigations are sound, (and of course they are), we’d have to conclude that at least the young people we spoke with on the following pages are living, breathing testaments to the philosophy that these are indeed, the best days of some very unique lives.
