Many children in rural areas like Guthrie grow up working with their parents on ranches and with animals. MacKenzie McGaha is no exception. She has always loved animals and she wants to continue to work with horses and let that be a part of her future family’s life as well. If you know Kenzie, then you know she is no ordinary person, so it makes sense that she doesn’t want any ordinary job. She wants a job that isn’t boring and one that she will be excited about when she wakes up in the morning. For her, that is being a vet.
Kenzie McGaha was born July 18, 1997 to Cody McGaha and Kristy Wyatt. Kenzie grew up with a dad who cowboyed and was around horses her whole life. She attended Guthrie her kindergarten, first, and second grade year and then moved Farwell. She moved back her sixth grade year and hasn’t left since. She has participated in FFA, FCCLA, one act play, cross country, basketball, 4-H, kids praise night, stock show, and cheerleading. Her favorite classes include: FCS, English and Biology.
After she graduates this May, she plans on attending Tarleton in Stephenville and major in Animal Sciences. She has been an excellent science student and really loves to learn all about humans and animals. Her spark for animals and keeping them healthy is what will drive her to success in college. Guthrie is proud to have MacKenzie as a student and the community is happy to have influenced her to become a vet.
