Katie George, 15A

Queen of the court

UofL student Katie George may have only just completed her junior year, but she stays awfully busy. George earned her first degree after three years with a double major in communications and sport administration.

George’s long list of accomplishments to date includes:

  • Volleyball player
  • USA National Collegiate Team silver medalist
  • Honors Program student
  • National Society of Collegiate Scholars member
  • Miss Kentucky USA title

In addition to returning to the volleyball team as its leader in assists, George will compete in the national Miss USA pageant this September.

A first-time entrant, she remarked, “I never thought I’d be a beauty queen or in a pageant wearing a crown. This is crazy.”
