It’s not easy to move to a new school your senior year of high school. But Iola High School valedictorian Mackenzie Palmer said she enjoys Iola so much, she’s going to stick around and go to college here, too.

Palmer and her family moved to Iola from Texas last summer, just before the start of her senior year. The area is quite familiar, though. She has a lot of family in the area and visited often. She previously lived in Chanute and Burlington. She had been in Texas since her freshman year.

Keeping up on her grades wasn’t too challenging, Palmer said. The biggest problem was transferring her school records from Texas. Her previous school first sent her records to an Iola High School in another state.
