Rachel McKenna
Senior Rachel Mckenna is a Social Media Editor for this, her second, year on the ACHONA newspaper. Outside of class, Mckenna is a member of a volunteer organization called Teens in Action which teaches high school students social and emotional learning skills through weekly service projects. Mckenna's weekly service project is at a local women's center called The Spring. Mckenna works behind the scenes on the Youth Action Committee to plan informational sessions. She explains, "I come up with lessons to teach at the Boys and Girls Club about healthy relationship skills." Mckenna's favorite pass time is decorating the blank pages of adult coloring books with her Crayola markers. This hobby has become so central in Rachel's life, that it is actually the topic of her charming college essay. This year, Mckenna has spearheaded the ACHONA's new Instagram called "Humans of Academy", modeled after the very popular journalism style coined by journalist Brandon Stanton in Humans of New York.
