Macy Whitens - 2020 Outstanding Graduate for the Social and Behavioral Sciences 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.

Macy Whitens was selected as the 2020 Outstanding Graduate for the Social & Behavioral Sciences Division, with the award being sponsored by Burkhart, Lewandowski & Miller, the Bay College Faculty Association, and the Bay College Foundation.

A graduate of North Central High School, Macy started her college journey at Bay College in 2018.  She selected Bay College because she wanted to stay close to home and work part-time to save for her future. Macy stated, “Bay has helped me succeed through a number of helpful opportunities. I had an advisor to answer any questions and to keep me on the track to success. Bay’s instructors really care about your individual growth and provide resources so everyone has a chance to learn in their own unique way.”

In June, Macy will earn an Associate in Arts Degree from Bay College. She will be continuing her education at the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay in Social Work or Therapy. Macy has a passion for helping people and is excited for her future.

Macy is employed part-time at Pinecrest Medical Care Facility. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, volunteering in her community, and working on her own personal growth.
