She is also passionate about physical education and turning it into a positive experience for all students regardless of their athletic abilities. Baylee is on the MCC softball team and earned 3rd team Academic All-American status during her first semester. She has volunteered at the food pantry in Crystal Lake, Feed My Starving Children, and Girls on the Run.
