Meet Macey:  Hello, I am Macey Russell and I am a Junior at Harmony High School. I have lived in East Texas my whole life. I grew up in a Christian home with my parents, my sister Bailee, and my dog Cookie. I was baptized in 2013 when I was 11. I have always had a good support system. My hobbies include fishing, sports, listening to music, watching Netflix, eating, and hanging out with friends and family. Sports and competition have always been a huge part of my life. Currently, I am involved in volleyball, basketball, tennis, student athletic training, Fellowship of Christian Athletes (where I am a Huddle Leader), and National Honors Society. My future plans include attending Harding University and majoring in education or Physical Therapy. I hope to reach as many people as I can about the word of God and the importance of a good relationship with Him. My sister was killed by a drunk driver in 2016, when I was 14. Through sharing my story, I hope to encourage others to Godliness in their everyday lives.
