Oconto High School Student Recipient of Joseph Bralick Memorial Health Scholarship

The Bay at Oconto Health and Rehabilitation Center is pleased to announce that Saige Wojkiewicz has been awarded the Joseph Bralick Memorial Health Scholarship, which is funded each year by the facility. “I am thrilled to present this scholarship to Saige Wojkiewicz as she pursues a career in health care,” said Brianna Klemp, Administrator of The Bay at Oconto Health and Rehabilitation Center. “The Bay at Oconto Health and Rehabilitation Center is pleased to fund the Bralick Memorial Health Scholarship, which has provided support for exceptional students like Saige to pursue their dreams of serving in the health care provider community since 2004.”

The scholarship was established in honor of Mayor Joseph Bralick, whose dedication and great efforts assured the existence of a long-term health care facility in the city of Oconto. His perseverance and commitment to the elderly of Oconto will long be remembered as well as the hope that the recipients of this scholarship will demonstrate the same commitment while pursuing their career in a health or medical related field of study.

“Thanks to The Bay at Oconto Health and Rehabilitation Center and the other local companies and organizations for providing support to exceptional students like Saige in the efforts to pursue their dreams,” said Adam DeWitt, Principal of Oconto High School.

A certificate was presented to Wojkiewicz last week during the Seniors Award Ceremony at Oconto High School. In Saige’s essay which she submitted, Saige expressed gratitude for the opportunities afforded her by being an Oconto High School student. Wojkiewicz said she will attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in Psychology on a Pre-Physician Assistant track in the fall of 2022.

“During my junior year, I was able to take a Nursing Assistant course through Northeast Wisconsin Technical College at no cost to me. Within two months I had earned my first college certificate and became qualified to test for state certification. Two months later I became a State Certified Nursing Assistant and shortly after a CNA for Bellin Health Oconto Hospital,” Wojkiewicz wrote. “At seventeen I have received a tremendous amount of exposure to the basics of what healthcare authentically is, which will benefit me heavily in the future as I plan to continue working in the medical field. Not only have I received a beneficial steppingstone into health care but I have also learned efficient communication skills and feel more comfortable speaking around others.”
