For the first time ever, three women sit on Kentucky's Supreme Court.  Justice Michelle Keller swore in Tuesday completing the court. 

With her father, Justice Keller took her oath and her new seat on the bench. 

"That was the most amazing moment in my life other than probably giving birth to my girls," said Keller.

She said she felt humbled, joyful, and overwhelmed.

"It's incredibly surreal.  I have worked, I just could never have imagined this in my future," said Keller.

She says she never dreamed of making history either.

Keller joins Mary Noble and Lisabeth Abramson to become the first three women on the court at the same time.

"To join the other 2 women on the court is something professionally that I could only have dreamed of," said Keller.

A huge crowd packed the court to watch her swear in.

"My seventh grade science teacher was here for goodness sakes.  I mean, that says it all," said Keller.

Some people waited in line for nearly an hour to shake her hand, and congratulate her.
