MacKenzie currently has a 3.7 GPA and participates in student council and mathletes. She is the only bass clarinetist in the school band.

She is also an active leader of Geyer Road Baptist Church as a member of the youth leadership team, youth council, prayer intercessors, ushers and children's church helpers. She also leads youth worship through guitar and singing every Sunday night. In the future MacKenzie plans on attending college and studying early education and possibly special education in the hopes of becoming an elementary school teacher.
Key to Awesomeness: "It'll be alright in the end. If it's not alright its not the end," MacKenzie said.
