Mr. Bagley was nominated by his instructor, Vicky Duckworth of the Grand River Technical School in Chillicothe, where he is enrolled in the Computer Service Technology program. Mr. Bagley plans to attend North Central Missouri College and pursue an Associate of Applied Science degree. In her nomination, Ms. Duckworth noted, "Kyle has a strong moral code and has personal standards that he abides by in his daily life personally, academically, and professionally."

Mr. Bagley is currently serving as the Vice President of the SkillsUSA AM chapter at Grand River Technical School and Treasurer of the Science Club. He has received leadership awards in SkillsUSA, earned inclusion on the A Honor Roll in all of his high school years, and has been recognized on the Director's Honor Roll and as Student of the Quarter at Grand River Technical School.

As the NCMC High School Career and Technical Education Student of the Year, Kyle was recognized with a certificate of achievement and plaque. He will also receive a $350 scholarship from the North Central Missouri College Foundation. NCMC Foundation Director Teresa Cross stated, "As the NCMC Foundation kicks off a new campaign to further increase scholarship opportunities, Kyle is a wonderful example of the type of individual that benefits from scholarship funds. Scholarships are provided by generous donors to the NCMC Foundation."

North Central Missouri College partners with many secondary career and technical education schools in the area by ensuring various technical pathways are available to students. Career and technical education schools within NCMC's service territory were invited to nominate and submit one candidate from any of their CTE programs for consideration as the High School Career and Technical Education Student of the Year. Students can earn the equivalent of free college credit by participating in an articulated program of career and technical education classes while attending high school, an area technical school or a career center.

Grand River Technical School in Chillicothe provides technical career education in a variety of disciplines and is a key technical education partner with North Central Missouri College.
