She’s driving to Chapel Hill like her fellow incoming Tar Heels, but Paige Court could take to the skies for the journey if she wanted.
The Goldsboro native earned her private pilot certification this year and has hopes to build a career around her love of flying. Court plans to join the Air Force ROTC at Carolina and enter the Air Force itself after she graduates.
Like obtaining her pilot’s license, coming to Carolina is a dream come true.
I just always drew more to being a Tar Heel than any other college. I just always wanted to come here, and I’m so excited that I get to.
