Congratulations Mackenna and thank you for Always Playing IV Each Other!
Watch Mackenna’s inspiring story of leadership that aired on CBS Atlanta.
Excerpt from the APIVEO Player of the Month sponsored by Zaxby’s award ceremony;
Mackenna is already a gifted tennis player and I know she will earn a lot of awards and trophies to back that up. But that’s not why she’s standing up here today. At 7 years old, Mackenna is already a true leader. Mackenna already gets “it” and Mackenna already does “it”. “It” is love and concern translated into action. “It” is leadership. There isn’t an opportunity that comes up where Mackenna doesn’t finds a way to help. She is always stepping up and volunteering. Whether she’s at a tennis tournament with her sister or attending the youth ministry at church. Mackenna is not just at the front of the “how can I serve you line” she’s usually the reason there is a line! I recently got to see her in action. A few months ago we were at an event and someone brought a cookie cake. After watching Mackenna take her 5th piece of cake, I looked at my bride, Kristy, and said, “boy, that little girl can eat!!” Kristy looked at me and said, “she’s not eating it. She’s bringing it to all the guys at the front desk” …and she did that before she took her first bite!” That’s “putting others first” in action. That’s leadership. Well done Mackenna… You are a great leader! -Brad Jubin, APIVEO
