Bowling Green native Brittany LaRue developed vitiligo when she was in high school. Vitiligo, a disease, is a loss of pigment in the skin, which follows the destruction of pigment-forming cells known as melanocytes. LaRue said she does’t mind people asking her about her skin because she would rather people be educated about vitiligo. (Tyler Essary/HERALD)
