McKenna Rammell is from San Antonio, Texas. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Music with an emphasis in piano, and a minor in English from Brigham Young University-Idaho. She also served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Billings, Montana. While in Montana, McKenna learned that her education in music could only go so far in helping people tackle difficult challenges such as religious freedom, disability, and poverty. Her goal for her legal education is to gain the skills and knowledge that will allow her to be an advocate and leader in her community, with a particular focus on religious freedom issues. McKenna’s interest in the International Center for Law and Religion Studies was a key reason why she applied to the J. Reuben Clark Law School. She was on Master Schedule team for the 2018 Symposium Executive Committee.
