Mackenzie Champion

Hello! My name is Mackenzie Champion, although most call me Mack, and I’m the 2024 Youth Program Manager. I’m looking forward to working with children and making art all summer long! I just finished my first year at the University of Wisconsin-Stout majoring in Art Education. In my spare time I compete on the UW-Stout Track and Field team as a pole vaulter, as well as participate in community service and philanthropic opportunities with my sorority, the Gamma chapter of Phi Theta Chi. I love reading and I’ve recently started experimenting with my green thumb. I’m looking forward to working in a small community and growing the Shake Rag Alley family!
