Q&A with Paige Poffenberger
Paige Poffenberger, a freshman from Morgantown, W.Va., began her University of Kentucky career this past fall as a biology major and Spanish minor. A National Merit Scholar and recent walk-on to the UK women’s basketball team, Poffenberger has a passion for volunteering, travel and art, and is a self- proclaimed nerd who loves biology and trying anything new.
