Class of 2022: McKenna Bartelme ’22

We celebrate the Class of 2022, what they have achieved during their years at Ripon and what they hope to achieve in the next chapter of their lives.

McKenna Bartelme ’22 of Green Bay, Wisconsin, had a double major in exercise science-athletic training and exercise science-human performance with a minor in strength and conditioning. She will pursue a master’s degree in athletic training and eventually will become a certified athletic trainer.

“The most important lesson that I will be taking with me is that hard work does pay off,” she says. “You may not see the outcomes that you want in the beginning, but all good things take time. You just have to keep working hard to see the success that you can have.”

Her favorite memory is being part of the Ripon College swim team where she made some of her best memories of college and met some of her best friends.
