Macey Hensley stars in Kansas tourism TV ads

Macey Hensley, Council Grove, is being featured in a statewide television ad campaign from the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT). The popular six-year old is shown visiting Exploration Place in Wichita and the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Childhood Home in Abilene. The commercials encourage family travel in Kansas and will run in the Kansas City, Pittsburg, Topeka and Wichita markets April 25 through May.

Last year Hensley was tagged as one of Kansas’ Finest by Kansas! Magazine. She has appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show seven times where she won the hearts of millions of viewers by demonstrating her in-depth knowledge of U.S. presidents from Washington to Obama. She will soon be visiting the Smithsonian Museum in Washington. D.C. courtesy of DeGeneres and is scheduled to appear on the show again on April 29, 2016.
