McKenzie Tuckson | Wesley Mortgage Community Hero

This week, McKenzie Tuckson was honored as the Wesley Mortgage Community Hero. McKenzie doesn't let her disability hold her back. A 19-year old with Rhett Syndrome, McKenzie is nonverbal but that doesn't mean she doesn't communicate. She uses her augmentative communication device to get her message across. She advocates for equal and fair treatment for students with disabilities within her school system. Because of her advocacy, Metro Nashville Public Schools revised their policies on the use of rifton belted chairs in the classroom. She was voted President of her Junior and Senior class by her peers.
