Since our Ottumwa Radio Group Athlete of the Week feature has been put on hold due to the cancellation of the Spring sports season, we have decided to recognize Seniors at area high schools for the time being! With that said, the KISS FM Senior of the Week is: Kaylee Bix, a Senior at Ottumwa High School.
Athletics were important to this senior as Kaylee participated at the varsity level in basketball, softball, and swim for the Bulldogs. She also participated in powderpuff football and intramurals. Describing her time at OHS as “fun, memorable, and exciting,” Kaylee says her greatest high school accomplishment was, “working my best and always pushing to do better.”
She recalls her favorite memory in her four years at Ottumwa High being riding the bus for sport events and football games with all of the memories that were made. When asked what lesson(s) she will take away from her high school experience, Bix said, “Never take anything for granted, especially time because you’ll never get it back.” Her advice to underclassmen is “don’t forget to have fun during school and make memories you will carry with you.”
Kaylee plans to attend Indian Hills Community College to continue her softball career and enroll in the dental hygiene program.
Ottumwa Radio Group’s Senior of the Week feature is made possible by the generosity of Josh, Brenda, and the team at Meridian Credit Union. Join us in congratulating Kaylee Bix, the KISS FM Senior of the Week!
