Collin Farnes with instructor Chris Gravatt

Each year, Bay College selects an Outstanding Graduate from each of the six divisions at the college.  The graduate is selected by their instructors for their academic excellence, leadership and community service.

Collin Farnes was selected as the 2022 Outstanding Graduate for the Math Science Division, with the award being sponsored by Engineered Machined Products (EMP), the Bay College Faculty Association, and the Bay College Foundation.

Collin earned an Associate in Science in Pre-Professional Health from Bay College in May.  His future plans include attending medical school to become an infectious disease specialist.

In regards to Collin’s college experience, he stated “Bay College allowed me to transition to college without being overwhelmed by a big university, and Bay gave me the tools I needed to succeed in my education and my career.  Many of my science classes were very challenging, however the class sizes were small, so I was able to receive the help I needed from my instructors.”

Marc LaBeau, Bay College Instructor, stated “It was a pleasure having Collin in my Anatomy and Physiology courses because of the positive approach he had towards his education.  He was always personable and he knows who he is as a student.  Collin shared with me that his mother had taken my classes a few years ago, and it is obvious that like her, Collin shares a passion for knowledge and sets high standards for himself.”
