Madelin Corrao describes herself in 150 characters as:
Principled, empathetic and humble. Loves to travel, experience life and my crazy dog. Enjoys learning and eager to change my piece of the world.
Madelin received the Brian LaViolette Scholarship for $10,000 this week in a surprise visit during her interior design class at DePere High School.
Through the administrative help of Partners in Education, one student was selected from about 4,000 Seniors in the Green Bay district. A student from each of the 17 schools applies. The committee narrows it down to 5 and our family, along with April of Partners in Education interview the finalists.
During the interview, we instantly felt Madelin's compassion and empathy. She is driven to help others and is focused to becoming a nurse practitioner. She has taken a Certified Nursing Assistant course at Bellin College in mornings before school started. Madelin would also like to become fluent in Spanish and complete her clincials in South America before coming back to the community as a nurse.
