Kailey Vietzke - 2020 Outstanding Graduate for the Allied Health Division at Bay College.

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.

Kailey Vietzke was selected as the 2020 Outstanding Graduate for the Allied Health Division, with the award being sponsored by OSF HealthCare, the Bay College Faculty Association, and the Bay College Foundation.

A graduate of Rapid River High School, Kailey selected Bay College because it was close to home and affordable. Kailey has enjoyed her experience at Bay College and stated “Because of the small class sizes, I was able to connect with each of my instructors and classmates on a more personal level, much more than you could expect at a large university. Bay College has helped me blossom into a confident young adult.”

In June, Kailey will receive an Associate in Applied Science Paramedic Degree from Bay College. She plans to enter the workforce as a paramedic to gain experience before returning to school to pursue a career as a Flight Paramedic or Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist.

In her free time, Kailey enjoys reading, listening to music, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends. In addition, Kailey is a firefighter for the Masonville Volunteer Fire Department.
