Madison Colahan is this year’s final Lion's ClubStudent of the Month. Her selection is based on the culmination of effort and work in the classroom and on the athletic field throughout the school year.
As a student, Maddie sports a 3.587 GPA, has consistently been on the honor roll, and is currently 41st in her class. She also is actively involved with numerous school groups, including National Honor Society, Move2Stand, Student Council, Principal’s Advisory Committee, VIA social media group and Art Club. With her academic honors, Maddie was also selected as a participant in Buckeye Girl’s State.
Despite Maddie’s involvement in numerous co-curricular activities and groups, she excels even more in volleyball, basketball and track. As a member of the record setting volleyball team, she was chosen to serve as captain for two years. She has been awarded Junior 1st team all-Lorain County, 3rd team District 6, and Sandusky Bay Conference Honorable Mention. As a Senior, Maddie received District 6 First Team and Sandusky Bay Conference First team. As a basketball player, she received Lorain County Honorable in her Junior year, and first team Lorain County, District 6 Division 2 Honorable Mention and 2nd team Sandusky Bay Conference in her Senior year. She also ranks near the top in career rebounds for girls’ basketball.
When Maddie isn’t hitting the books, spiking a volleyball or rebounding a basketball, she finds time to volunteer at various basketball and volleyball camps. She worked as a volunteer at “A Night To Shine”, which was a prom night for children with special needs. She also finds time to work at Romp’s during the summer months.
Many teachers would classify Maddie as helpful, conscientious and positive. As her NHS advisor and teacher, Mr. D’Egidio said that she is the kind of young woman Vermilion can be proud of, who represents her school, her community, and most importantly, her family with the greatest of pride and respect.
Maddie’s family includes her parents Aimee and Brett Colahan, sisters Camryn and Kaitlin and brother Trey.
