Katelyn O’Dell is a second year student at Kankakee Community College. She is currently pursuing her Nursing Degree. Katelyn is passionate about a career in the healthcare field and will do whatever it takes to be successful.
Katelyn is a CNA, Phlebotomist, and works in the ER at Riverside. Her career choice came after an illness caused her to spend time in the hospital when she was younger. Katelyn is grateful for the care and compassion that she received from her nurses and hopes to make the same difference in other people’s lives. She counts her greatest achievement as being accepted into the Nursing Program at KCC.
Receiving the Century Scholars Scholarship has allowed Katelyn to focus more on school, although she continues to work three jobs in the healthcare field.
