Gale gets Rotary honor
Mackenzie Gale, a senior at Sequim High School, was recognized as the Sequim Sunrise Rotary’s March Student of the Month.
Gale has lived in Sequim since eighth grade and has two siblings. She was nominated by her teacher Mark Knudson who is her Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Robotics Club teacher at Sequim High School.
At a recent Rotary club meeting, Knudson emphasized Gale’s strong leadership skills and her investment in volunteer hours to help the Robotics Club. She has been enrolled in his CAD class for two years and this year designed a part for the robot’s wheel that he said was an improvement over the commercial part they replaced. He said he wished he could have more students like Gale in his class.
Gale says she enjoys volleyball, tennis and robotics. Her community activities include helping at her church doing the video for the services, putting in more than 150 hours a year in volunteer hours, along with teaching sign language to two fifth-grade classes, and assisting with serving food at the Rotary Christmas luncheon for senior citizens.
Her plans for the future include attending WSU and getting a degree in business or engineering.
