Meet Your Neighbor

By Susan Galbraith, Quill Staff

Meet your neighbor Kyle Bailey of rural Oquawka.

Kyle is 18 years old and lives with his mom and dad, Chuck and Gayle Bailey.

Kyle was born in Burlington, Iowa, and raised on the family farm near Oquawka.

He has two sisters, Bekah, who lives in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Leah who is junior at Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Kyle has been home schooled since he started first grade and is now a senior.

He attends Southeastern Community College, in West Burlington, Iowa, and plans to continue taking classes there next semester.

After graduation Kyle plans on attending a 4-year college and presently is in the process of sending applications.

Kyle likes to play the guitar and enjoys playing in the high school praise band at Harmony Bible Church at Danville, Iowa.

He enjoys helping out on the farm and spending time with his friends.

Kyle has been on three big vacations, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park and California.

He enjoyed all three trips seeing different areas of the United States but the most memorable one is the trip to California.

He liked camping with his family, having camp fires, and playing UNO after dark, even though he said his Dad cheated.
