The Clan Mackenzie Society in the Americas, Inc. was incorporated in February 1988. Its organization was based on an idea and dream of Gibson R. Mckenzie. He first presented his idea to a group of MacKenzies at Grandfather Mountain in 1974.
The purpose of the society is "to foster a greater interest among MacKenzie descendants in the Clan MacKenzie and to educate and instill an awareness of Scottish traditions."
The Mackenzies have a proud heritage dating back many centuries and we hope to preserve and continue the many traditions of our clan and our Scottish heritage.
The purpose of the Society is to perpetuate Scottish traditions and culture through charitable endeavors and the social interaction of its members by providing scholarships and grants to advance the education of students pursuing studies in Scottish history, language, culture, athletics, music, dance, and other related educational pursuits as well as conduct activities and community events.
