Outstanding Students

Makenna Hammes

Where are you from?

Sigourney, Iowa.

Why did you choose Kirkwood?

I was looking for a great opportunity to learn more about Apparel Merchandising but in a smaller environment, which I felt Kirkwood would be perfect for.

What is your major and how did you choose it?

The major I chose was Apparel Merchandising and Design.

What has been your proudest moment at Kirkwood?

It would be completing our third edition Bricolage magazine. Having this opportunity to learn how to put together a photoshoot and work with other people to form this amazing magazine.

What are your plans after Kirkwood?

I plan to transfer to Iowa State where I will continue my major and minor in business as well.

What inspires or motivates you?

My family, seeing all the hard work they do with their jobs inspires me to do the same.

Tell us about who you are outside of Kirkwood – hobbies, family, other interests, etc.

I love all things fashion, being able to find new trends and exploring new things within the industry. I also love spending time with my family or baking with my sister.

What does being named an Outstanding Student mean to you?

It is a great honor. I find myself very appreciative. I am grateful to see that I have made an impact in the classroom.
