MADISON HANSON | HAVRE, MT
Nominated by Meaghan Bailey
Throughout my university career Madison has had the privilege of being involved in many facets of the community at Montana State. As a member of her sorority she was able to give back to her local community through their partnership with the Montana Make a Wish foundation, including co-chairing the annual 3-on-3 basketball fundraiser. While serving as Panhellenic president, she oversaw the establishment of an all-sorority philanthropy Circle of Sisterhood, bringing attention to the educational obstacles faced by women in developing countries. My sophomore year, she broadened her horizons and embarked on a summer research trip analyzing political institutions in the UK. After the conclusion of this trip, she and her peers established the Anglophiles British politics club with the aid of their professor. Overall, her time at Montana State University provided her the tools to invest in the greater community and impassioned her to pursue lifelong education in all forms.
