McEnany’s Former Religious School Teacher Is Now Disappointed in Her
Emma Green of The Atlantic published a profile of White House Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, on June 25th. The piece focused on McEnany’s rise to press secretary and goes back to her time at a Christian Academy. The article also focused on McEnany’s history as a conservative Christian.
Green wrote, “McEnany began her life as an evangelist among the masses. ‘KMac,’ as she was called, stood out as a Protestant at the Academy of the Holy Names, a Catholic girls’ school in Tampa, Florida, choosing to write about Jesus, whom she called ‘my hero,’ for a sixth-grade poetry assignment: ‘I shout his name,’ McEnany wrote, ‘for he is king.’ She grew up in a conservative Republican household in nearby Plant City, and her father operates a roofing business.”
