“Makenzie McGuire is a senior at Thompson High School. Her academic accolades include membership in the National Honor Society and a 4.3 GPA (with AP courses), while her extracurricular activities revolve around horse shows, water sports and participation in Thompson’s marching band. Recently, she was selected as one of 40 attendees selected from a pool of 2,500 applicants for Georgetown University’s Leadership Opportunities for Teens (LOFT) program.
It’s an impressive resume for any high school student – but for McGuire, who was expected to achieve only a fourth grade reading level due to her deafness, it is positively remarkable.”
I loved writing about this incredible student and the amazing things she is doing! Read the whole story here.
