We continue celebrating West Kentucky raised individuals who are succeeding in the arts in major markets with a profile on Candra Kennedy, who also goes by CW Kennedy or just plain "Kennedy" in Philadelphia. Last year a Kennedy play was one of Philadelphia Inquirer critic Wendy Rosenfeld's top 5 picks of the Philly Fringe Festival which included about 260 plays. Kennedy grew up unschooled/homeschooled K-12 in the Lowes Area of Graves County. Unschooling is a variation of homeschooling that is more student-led and not curriculum driven. Kennedy also performed with the Paducah Symphony Youth Chorus, studied Suzuki violin, performed with the MSU Orchestra, studied dance with Karen Balzer and performed with the Footlights Troupe of the Markethouse theatre.
