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, she 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. McKenna has been interested in the International Center for Law and Religion Studies since she applied to the J. Reuben Clark Law School, and has joined the Symposium Master Schedule team this year as a first year student with the hope of staying involved throughout her time in law school.
