- While the state of Wisconsin celebrates Aaron Rodgers Day, a Northland Pines Middle School student got a once in a lifetime birthday ambush.
Mackenzie Renkes turned 12 today, 12-12-2012. The next time anybody will get to celebrate a birthday like this will be a lifetime from now. So her mom rallied the troops to surprise her at school.
"It's a golden birthday and it just doesn't happen very often. She is very, very lovable. She's very soft-hearted. She's a big family person she takes care of her little brothers a lot and does a lot around the house so we just wanted to make it really special for her," says Shannon Walker.
Four generations of Mackenzie's family showed up at the school to sing her happy birthday. Her little brother Ryan even got out of school to join in the fun.
As for the other guy the whole state is celebrating today, Mackenzie says it's pretty cool to share her birthday with Aaron Rodgers' special day.
