The Central Trend

Madison Szczepanski
Madison is a senior this year at FHC and has an ineffable amount of excitement for what this year has in-store for her. Madison will be attending Calvin College in the fall and is looking forward to what the future holds. She is planning on studying English secondary education. She is looking forward to developing a wider span of readers of The Central Trend this year through her position as the ME of Public Relations, and can not wait to work with her fellow staff members to do so.

Favorite thing about being on staff: Being able to express my thoughts and unique voice through writing, and sharing it with others.

Favorite type of stories to write: Columns, but also profiles because they highlight students and teachers that are doing amazing things for both FHC and the surrounding community.

Hobbies/Interests: Drinking coffee, New York City, photography, and writing.

On a Friday night, you'll probably find Madison: Either working or hanging out with her friends.

Madison Szczepanski, Managing Editor of Public Relations
