The Senior Spotlight winner for the month of November is Madelyn Alton. Madelyn is the daughter of Gerald and Sue Alton. During her high school career, Madelyn was involved in Volleyball, FCCLA, the R-C Chatter, WYSE Team, Math Team, and she was a Homework Depot Tutor.
Her future plans are to attend an as of yet undecided 4-year university to major in Nursing and potentially play volleyball.
Here are a few thoughts from Madelyn’s teachers. Mrs. Bugg says that Madelyn “is so mature and sincerely friendly and encouraging to her classmates. She definitely stands out among the rest as a tenacious leader. Her future accomplishments will be endless!” Ms. Faletti agrees and believes that Madelyn “is a hard worker who leads her peers by setting great examples. She is laser-focused and goal-oriented. Madelyn balances her academics with an extremely busy extracurricular schedule and makes it look easy. She is an excellent role-model for all students at Reed-Custer.” Mrs. Valiente says that she “can always count on Madelyn to have a smile on her face and skip in her step. She is kind, witty, and truly a joy to be around. She also has great hair and is a Blackhawks fan. #win.” Mrs. Chidester agrees that Madelyn “is an outstanding young woman. She is polite, kindhearted, thoughtful, studious and intelligent. I always look forward to seeing her in my Foods class. With her bright smile and outstanding work ethic, she truly stands out. I look forward to seeing where her life takes her.” Mrs. Leveille says that “Madelyn was great to have in class. I had her in Honors Biology her freshman year. She is a really hard worker and paid a lot of attention to detail on her classwork. She took charge of group work as she often was a leader and worked well with others.” Mrs. Benoit believes that Madelyn “is one of those unique students, more interested in the learning than the grade. She is motived intrinsically to take challenging classes and has the discipline to put in the time to study and achieve success. Madelyn connects with others in a group setting to help out with anything.” Mrs. Rankin says that Madelyn is “a diligent worker and a great leader in the classroom.” Mr. Voris thinks that Madelyn is “extremely reliable. I know I can count on her to help make every episode of the Chatter Newscast a quality production whether she is working behind the scenes in the journalism class or on camera talking about sports.” Mr. Carrescia believes that Madelyn “is a hard worker who is motivated to do well in and out of the classroom. She is a role model to the younger students to show them that hard work pays off.”
As a final thought, Madelyn’s advice to younger students is to “Cherish your four years in high school because they truly do fly by. Get involved in as much as you can and have fun!”
On behalf of the teachers and staff at RCHS, we would like to congratulate Madelyn Alton as our November winner of the “Senior Spotlight”.
