McKenzie is having a great Summer!
McKenzie has experienced a unique summer filled with awesome opportunities. As a participant of the 2018 Camp U. N. I. T. E. D. (Uplifted, Nurtured, and Inspired Together Each Day), she had the opportunity to participate in daily workshops that focused on leadership development, healthy nutrition and body image, time management skills, communication skills, internet safety, and community/ public service. The girls’ primary focus was on the three paths to empowerment as they start their journey into middle school. Their unique journeys began with discovering their individual personal power or the power within. Then, they moved to the power of team or reaching across to work with others. The final path was the power of community/public service or the power of reaching out. The highlights of their camp was a 90 minute SKYPE session with girls their age in Migosi, Kenya, Africa and a field trip to City Hall to meet with Mayor Sharon Weston Broome, Councilwoman Tara Wicker, and Councilman Chandler Loupe. Each girl received a certificate of commendation signed by Mayor Broome and was also given the opportunity to visit the new Metro-Council chambers where they were allowed to participate in a mock Metro-Council meeting.
