McKenzie Waters
McKenzie Waters, a senior at Atlantic High School, joined journalism because she wanted to learn more about how to take videos and pictures as well as work cameras. Her favorite part about journalism is being able to make scripts and also keeping up on sports as well as school news.  Waters’ enjoys school because she gets to see her friends every day. “If I could go anywhere in the world, it would probably be the Dominican Republic because I like how clear the water is,” she said. In her free-time, Waters likes to watch football and cheer for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Iowa Hawkeyes. After high school, she plans to attend Missouri Western University and major in nursing. During the summer, Waters works at the little league concessions because of her hectic schedule during the school year. She participates in volleyball, basketball, soccer, and softball. Waters said she would describe herself as an “outgoing person who likes to get along with everybody.” If she had three days left to live she would spend as much time as possible with the people that are important to her, like her family or her best friend Chloe Davis.
