Mckenna Wade is an honors graduate of the University of San Diego with a degree in behavioral neuroscience.

FALLBROOK – Resident and community volunteer Mckenna Wade recently graduated magna cum laude at the University of San Diego from its honors program.

Wade received her behavioral neuroscience degree as well as a national designation as a certified nonprofit professional. Wade's time volunteering in the Fallbrook area dates back her service with the Fallbrook Hospital student auxiliary when the hospital was still active. From a military family, Wade has also been a long-term volunteer with the military community. She received the Presidential Youth Service Award.

Around a rigorous university schedule Wade continued volunteering throughout her college years with the Fallbrook Regional Health Care District, which is now Fallbrook Regional Health District, the Jack E. Johns Clinic and community health systems, the Fallbrook Community Center and the Fallbrook Smiles nonprofits.

During this time Wade conceived, wrote and administered a grant-funded program. The program, funded by the county of San Diego, provides free protective equipment and health screenings to agricultural workers to help prevent serious and costly injuries and identify health issues before they require emergency care.

Wade is the daughter of local residents retired U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. William Wade and Ann Wade. Mckenna Wade's career plans are to serve on an ongoing basis by joining the military as an upcoming physician. As such, she is currently applying to medical schools while continuing to volunteer and work.
