Madeline was nominated by Greg Armstrong. He describes Madeline as having a servant’s heart, strong leadership skills and dependable. Madeline has been involved with assembling food backpacks for the LSSD program, feeding the homeless in Nashville and serving individuals in Hancock County, the poorest county in Tennessee.

Armstrong wrote on the nomination form: “She is bold and courageous enough to lead her peers yet humble enough to always lead by exemplifying service.”
