Duggins is a normal student enjoying his last year and his drivers license.
Driving is freedom and a way to get his mind off everything else in his life, such as work and his future.
Duggins says he thinks about his future a lot.
"All these people have ideas about what they want to do," Duggins said of his classmates, "but I don't know yet."
He is thinking about attending KTCTS for training in an electrical field but his real joy is in woodworking class with Joe Taylor.
It's his favorite class because he gets to make furniture and shelves. Duggins enjoys the physical work of the class.
Duggins is a four-year member of the high school's Vocational and Industrial Classes of America (VICA)
His favorite pastime mixes driving and hanging out with friends -- cruising town. Getting out with friends is Duggins' favorite hobby.
Although he is a pretty good driver, Duggins has learned some hard lessons with his truck.
One lesson was that he had to come home at night. His punishment for that lapse was losing his license, phone and keys to his mom, Kay, which was pretty rough.
Recently, he learned to listen more closely to his dad, Kenny's advice when driving in the snow. Duggins slid off the road after his dad told him it was too bad to be out.
"Dad said it was too bad but it was a lesson I had to learn the hard way," Duggins said.
Duggins and his father "do a lot together," Duggins says. Both enjoy hunting and working on vehicles.
His mother is most proud of her son because he is a hard worker.
Duggins co-ops at Future Designs in Leitchfield where he works in the lumber yard waiting on customers. He admits his favorite part of the job is payday.
He also has had some experience raising tobacco with his father and paternal grandparents, Hattie and the late Kenneth Duggins.
Duggins says his grandparents are important to him and he sees his mom's parents, Berlin and Jerline Hornback everyday.
"I've learned more from them than I can say," said Duggins.
