As graduation approaches many Johnson University seniors start to hone in on plans for their future. This reality is no different for JU senior MaKenze Hinchey.

Hinchey looks forward with anticipation for the children of the future – her future to be exact. She is currently engaged and plans to marry after completing her schooling for her future career.

“After graduation, other than get married, I am planning on becoming a teacher,” Hinchey said. “I, hopefully, will be a teacher in Kindergarten; that would be my dream grade.”

Looking forward to what is to come after graduation, Hinchey reminisces on her time spent on Johnson’s campus.

“Johnson University is a great place,” Hinchey said. “I’ve made life-long friends here that I never expected I would, and I’ve just gotten so close to my professors. I feel like you don’t get that everywhere.”

During her time at JU, Hinchey has been involved around campus. One current attribution for Hinchey is serving on Student Government Association.

“I’m the Executive Director of Social Activities, which is a big thing just to say that I plan activities on campus,” Hinchey said. “My favorite part is planning the events, and that’s what we do.”

Another aspect of Johnson in which Hinchey has greatly enjoyed participating is Royal Wellness, which offers those of the JU community an opportunity to fellowship whilst working out.

“That’s one of my favorites; you don’t really realize how you can worship through exercise,” Hinchey said.

Hinchey is excited for all that is to come after graduation. As she approaches the next step of life, she uses skills learned from her time in SGA and plans for her future.

Hinchey said that her main goal in life is to glorify God. She desires to live for Him, despite the craziness happening in the world around her.
