BILLINGS, Mont., December 11, 2019 - RMC student Bailey Rheaume has received a Montana Student Volunteer Award. The award, previously known as the Volunteer of the Game Award, has been awarded to 13 students from college campuses around the state of Montana.

Montana Campus Compact affiliate campuses, in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Community Service, give this award to college students across the state who have demonstrated service to their communities while pursuing a college degree or certificate. Each will be recognized at a campus or home sporting event and presented with a certificate signed by Governor Bullock and their college president.

"This incredible group of students is certainly deserving of our recognition as they take the time and commitment
to be a force of good in their communities," said Montana Governor Steve Bullock. "I commend these students for what is likely the start of a lifelong commitment to service and encourage others to follow their example."

She is the Student Coordinator of Bear’s Cupboard, an emergency food program she developed while serving as an AmeriCorps service member on campus. Passionate about literacy education, she serves in elementary school classrooms across Billings and advocates for access to higher education. Bailey uses her education to lead others into service.
