McKenzie created a piece, “Arizona Woman Serves as Leaders in Farming,” for her video production class and the Arizona Farm Bureau.

McKenzie’s  story focuses on Sherry Saylor of Buckeye, a member of the Arizona Farm Bureau and vice chairwoman of the American Farm Bureau’s Women’s Leadership Committee. She and her husband operate a cotton, wheat and alfalfa farm. Saylor is also involved in agriculture education around the state.
