SENIOR OF THE MONTH-NOVEMBER

Madeline MacGregor daughter of Adrian MacGregor and Kathleen MacGregor has been selected by members of the MHS Faculty Council as Senior of the Month for November, 2021.  This program is sponsored by the Mid-America National Bank who established the program to recognize the accomplishments of outstanding senior students.

 

Madeline participates in the Madrigals, Bomber Bellas, MYLO, National Honor Society, Speech Team, and is President of the Macomb High School Thespian Troupe.

 

Madeline is involved with private piano lessons and is a member of the Crossing Worship Band and Crossing Kids' Ministry. She also volunteers at the Elms and Heartland Nursing Homes, Macomb Arts Center (pianist) and volunteers at the First Presbyterian Church. 

 

Madeline has earned many honors which include Division 1 rankings for piano and vocal solos for IHSA/IESA Solo & Ensemble Competition (2017-2020); Best of Day Award for Piano Solo (2021); and Most Valuable Player Award for Girls' Tennis (2018-2020).

 

Some favorite pass times are composing music and spending time with family and friends. 


Madeline has had previous work experience lifeguarding at Georgetown Pool and currently works as a sales associate at Maurices.         

 

After high school, Madeline plans to attend either Indiana University or University of Iowa to major in Music Education while continuing with studying classical piano.
