After graduating from Heritage Hall in 2016, Paige Miles left Oklahoma City for the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. The Navy recruited a volleyball player who wants to be a medical doctor.
As a midshipmen in the pre-med track, Miles applied for an exclusive internship that brought her back home this month to work with scientists at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation.
