||Name: Mackenzie Lunney
Age: 18 Grade: 2016 Graduate
I chose: Keys College & Career Prep
Why? For the flexibility to work with my schedule and
the college preparation.
Mackenzie says: “When I first started with Keys during my freshman year, I was five weeks behind and I thought I was never going to make it through. With the help of my Education Specialist, I felt confident and was able to finish the work”. Mackenzie plans to pursue a nursing career and her advice to new students is “No matter what, don’t give up. Lots of people are there to help and you should always take advantage of that help.”
