In addition to captaining LA girls’ varsity hockey, Maddox started the crew co-op program with Westford Academy and captained the Westford community rowing program. “We row on Forge Pond in Westford,” she said. “It’s pretty small, but it does the trick.” Twice, Maddox has traveled to the Wintergreen Dog Sledding Lodge in Minnesota, first as part of a group Winterim trip and then as a Winterim Professional to work as a staff intern. “It’s the largest Canadian Inuit sled dog kennel in the world,” she explained. “They have 73 dogs, and there were two 8-week-old puppies this spring. The day basically consisted of waking up in the morning and feeding and playing with all the dogs, then skiing about 10-20 miles alongside the guests who were dogsledding, and coming back and cooking dinner and playing with the puppies more — pretty much a dream come true.”
fall, Maddox received news in early May that she had been selected as a scholarship recipient out of the finalist pool. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) — which serves an initial screen of approximately 1.6 million entrants each year — and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements. During LA’s graduation exercises in June, Maddox received the Benjamin Davis Williams Prize, which is awarded by the faculty “to that senior whose leadership qualities, innovative ideas, and varied interests in the numerous areas of Lawrence Academy life all make this a better place in which to live, to experience, and to learn.” Clearly, Maddox has taken these qualities with her, to Georgetown’s benefit as well as her own.
