Throughout her high school career, Sierra Twigg always worked hard to achieve her goals. Whether those goals were in academics or athletics, Twigg consistently showed the dedication and drive to succeed.
Twigg, a senior at Frazier High School, will have the opportunity to meet a whole new set of challenges later this year as she has committed to continue her education and play for the women’s basketball team at Penn State Fayette.
“Because of my major, I plan to go to Fayette for two years and then two years at main campus,” Twigg explained.
Twigg plans to study veterinary medicine, which will obviously be demanding and time consuming. Still, Twigg very much wanted basketball to be a part of her college experience, and Fayette will allow her the chance to continue playing the sport she loves.
