MOVING FORWARD

For the last two years, the Eureka community has been busy moving forward since it was devastated by a tornado for the second time within a short two-year span. It was the evening of Tuesday, June 26, 2018 when an EF3 tornado traveled from the southwest corner of town, moving northeast at 152 mph, leaving many damaged homes, businesses and Eureka Junior Senior High School in its path. The storm grew quickly in intensity and left almost as quickly as it began. Over 150 properties were damaged, with over a dozen that were total losses. There were eight injuries reported, one critical.

Growing up, Kathleen McKenzie knew she wanted to pursue a career in the medical field, but what title she would hold was uncertain. “I went back and forth between going to medical school or physician assistant (PA) school,” commented Kathleen. “My mom (Nancy McKenzie, a PA-C at Greenwood County Hospital, in Eureka) has been extremely happy with what she does. She was a big reason I chose the option I did,” stated Kathleen.
