Makenzie Hochman is one of Palmetto Bay’s young adult shining stars! She is a senior at Miami Palmetto Senior High School and the Chair of the Palmetto Bay’s Youth Community Involvement Board. She is also the Vice President of the Key Club and has served as Student Council Class Treasurer for four years. Makenzie has been a Girl Scout member since kindergarten and in May 2019, she earned the Gold Award for her project “Preventing Infection One Hand Wash at a Time.” Her project teaches migrant workers the importance of hand washing and the proper way to do it. At first, it was an important lesson to prevent the spread of infections, and now to prevent the spread of the national pandemic, COVID-19. Additionally, Makenzie has been nominated for the prestigious Miami Herald Silver Knight Award in the Business Category. Makenzie will attend the University of Florida in the Summer.
We salute you and thank you for your inspiration, motivation and dedication to our Palmetto Bay!
