LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 22, 2014) — As students move onto the University of Kentucky campus, K Week is supposed to help students feel like they are part of a family from the very beginning.

This year, two sisters, Alysha and Katherine Poe, are both part of the Super Crew.  In this role, the Boone County natives lead and support members of the K Crew, who work directly with freshmen during K Week.   

Watch the “Big Blue Family” video above to discover why the Poe sisters are so committed to making sure new students feel like they are part of the Wildcat family.

This video feature is part of a special new series produced by UKNow focusing on families who help make up the University of Kentucky community.  There are many couples, brothers and sisters, mothers and sons and fathers and daughters who serve at UK in various fields.   The idea is to show how UK is part of so many families’ lives and how so many families are focused on helping the university succeed each and every day. 


Since the "Big Blue Family" series is now a monthly feature on UKNow, we invite you to submit future ideas.  If you know of a family who you think should be featured, please email us.  Who knows?  We might just choose your suggestion for our next feature!  Click on the playlist below to watch other Big Blue Family videos.
