2021/2022 Recipient: Bailey Whittington
We are "re-introducing" Bailey Whittington of Fort Smith, AR, who has been with the Degen Scholarship program since December 2017. Bailey received her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science in 2019 from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. She is now focusing on pursuing a degree as a Physician's Assistant at UAMS with plans to graduate in August 2022. A mission trip to Haiti when she was a high school sophomore led her to think the medical field was a good fit for her. We're so glad she took that trip and is following her dreams. We plan to see her in the River Valley area upon graduation!!
