If there is anyone who has left a mark on the IHA community, STUCO president Madeleine Fogarty has. In her four years as a Blue Eagle, Maddie has truly helped to make Immaculate Heart a different place.
Since her freshman year, Maddie ran Cross Country and Winter and Spring Track, earning her the role of Cross Country captain. She was part of STUCO for all four years; as a junior, she was a cabinet member and this year, she was president. Maddie considers helping to organize the school walkout for Parkland victims as one of her greatest accomplishments at IHA. Additionally, Maddie was an Eagle Ambassador, a member of CARE and a Senior Peer Mentor.
Outside of school, she gives back to the community by volunteering at an orthopedic rehabilitation center, where she has formed connections with her patients. From her eye-opening service, Maddie has learned valuable life lessons and the importance of patience and empathy.
Madeleine has taken a variety of CP, Honors, and AP courses during her high school career. She enjoys her AP Psychology class, taught by Ms. Chelotti. When asked about her thoughts on Madeleine, Ms. Chelotti shared that “Maddie is focused, hard working and never gives up! Such valuable qualities in a student but more importantly in a young woman of the 21st century!” By possessing these traits, Maddie is truly a model student. Additionally, she is very thankful for the teachers she has had here, who have been supportive, attentive, and have challenged her.
One of Madeleine’s favorite things about IHA is the sense of community she feels here. Maddie feels very lucky to have been apart of such a community, a place where young women challenge, empower, and motivate each other. Some of her favorite memories at IHA are going to Disney for Cross Country, Catholic Schools Week, and the senior dance.
In the fall, Maddie will be attending Fairfield University, where she will be studying business. She hopes to go on to graduate school after college. Thank you, Madeleine for all of your contributions to the IHA community. Always remember you can accomplish any task you set your mind to!
