Ferndale High School Senior Madison (Maddie) Smith is Ferndale Kiwanis October Student of the Month. She was honored at recent Kiwanis Club meeting.
Maddie is a busy young lady. In addition to maintaining a 4.0 grade point average for the past three years in the academic arena, she also participates in soccer, track, Honor Society, ASB leadership, ASB PBIS team and high school plays.
Maddie said, “I’m most proud of being a mentor. I like making kids smile. It makes my day.” Maddie mentors students at both Beach and Central elementary schools. Outside of school, she mentored Ferndale youth at the Ferndale Youth Camp held last summer. She has volunteered over 120 hours at the Ferndale Food Bank. Also during the summer, she works at a hair salon that caters to kids.
Maddie’s proud grandparents, Elvis and Georgia Dellinger, say, “Maddie is a bright and shining light. Children are drawn to her. She is determined, sets goals and has accomplished many things in spite of great diversity in her life.”
Life after high school for Maddie includes attending the University of California Los Angeles, then onto med school for study to be a pediatrician.
Maddie, we are proud of you and all that you do for others! Continue to shine your light.
