LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Paying attention in class has paid off for a Louisville high school student. 

Fourteen-year-old Alexandra Polur Gold, a freshman at Atherton High School, put her knowledge to the test on a Whiz Kid edition of "Who Wants to be A Millionaire."

She says she has been doing a lot of studying to prepare. 

"I was taking out 30 to 40 books from the library at a time," Gold said. 

The episode will air today at 1 p.m. on WDRB. 

Coming up today on WDRB News at 4, we'll hear from Gold and what she plans to do if she wins some cash.
