Paige Attaway


I am a graduate student pursuing a Masters of Science in Kinesiology (Sport Administration track). I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology from The University of Mississippi in May of 2017. While getting my undergraduate degree, I was involved in athletics as an ambassador for the Ole Miss baseball program, otherwise known as a Diamond Girl. I also helped raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network through numerous philanthropy events hosted by my sorority. I am currently a graduate assistant in the Kinesiology Department here at Louisiana Tech. My hobbies include traveling, meeting new people, and spending time with family. After graduating, I plan to further my schooling and receive a PHD in Clinical Psychology. My goal is to eventually become a collegiate Sport Psychologist, with hopes of one day moving up to the professional level.
