Your 2018 Special Fester – Mackenzie Peterson
Mackenzie Peterson is the daughter of Patrick and Stephanie Peterson of Holmen. She just turned 13,and is currently a 7th grader at Holmen Middle School. At home, she is the “princess in the middle” between her two fiercely protective brothers, Connor – 16, and Liam – 8, who can make her face light up with smiles like no one else can.
Mackenzie is a social butterfly – she really enjoys going to school and spending time with her friends there. She loves the flurry of activity and conversation in the lunch room, hearing a “Hi, Mackenzie!” from a friend passing in the hallway, and soaking up all of the attention from her aides that help her participate in activities with her classmates.
Kenzie LOVES music. She greatly enjoys her weekly music therapy sessions with Life In Harmony Music Therapy, and has participated in adaptive dance classes as well. She really likes to get outside and swim in the pool she received from Make-a-Wish, ride her adaptive bike, and go for walks with her dogs, Milo and Riley. But most of all, she loves to spend time with her family, especially on camping trips during the summer. And she never misses a chance to cheer on her brothers at their football and basketball games.
