Ryan Seniors were honored recently at a home ball game!
Ryan Seniors (l-r) Morgan McGhghy (parents Mr. and Mrs. David McGhghy behind her), Tate Kimbro (parents Mr. and Mrs. Richard Kimbro – Mom-Jamie and sister Shaylee stand behind him), Dawson Tomberlin (parents Mr. and Mrs. Tony Tomberlin behind him), River Williams (son of Eric and Carmen Griffin, and Dale and Felecia Williams), Joseph Martin (parents Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Martin behind him), Mackenzie Lewis (parents Mr. and Mrs. Brad Lewis behind her), Cassidy Charmasson (paretns Mr. and Mrs. Josh Charmasson behind her).
Her mother, Carol, a second grade teacher at Ryan has served as her inspiration to become an educator.
Mackenzie will attend USAO in Chickasha this fall and begin her journey towards a degree in Elementary Education.
There are many things she enjoyed while attending Ryan, but what she loved the most was sports.
She participated in basketball, softball, and track.
One of this year’s Salutatorians—Cara Williams, will be rooming with Mackenzie at USAO.
Another one of her favorite memories from growing up in Ryan is that she had her mom as her teacher.
She’s a quiet, unassuming, thoughtful person with a constant smile.
When she is not deeply involved in reading a book of science fiction, she enjoys drawing (she drew the artwork for her mother’s Christmas card this past year).
She also enjoys playing basketball, listening to rock music, and binge watching shows on Netflix.
One of her favorite subjects in school was history.
Although she doesn’t admit it, she is also a very good writer.
Her favorite color is purple.
Just a few her accomplishments in high school are as follows: Beta, Co-Valedictorian, Southern 8 conference All- Star in Basketball, Southern 8 All-Conference Fastpitch softball, VYPE top 100 Oklahoma Basketball Players.
When she graduates from USAO she says she would be willing to teach in Ryan if her mother is still there.
Over all she has a positive attitude and friendliness that will take her far in life.
We look forward to seeing where her hard work takes her.
We wish her only the best in her future endeavors.
