KING GEORGE HIGH: Maddie Amos
Parents: Kristin and Bradley Amos
What is an example of something this student has done to show caring for others? A naturally strong writer, on at least eight occasions this year, Maddie held writing “clinics” on the weekends for her fellow students to help them improve their writing skills. This was entirely voluntary on her part. —King George High staff nomination
What makes you feel this student has influenced the school community? Maddie leads by both position and example, both academically and athletically. She was elected by her peers as captain of the Girls' Cross Country Team. As captain, before each meet, she found inspirational quotes for each runner. She actively promoted team spirit and team unity. —King George High staff
Future plans: Maddie will attend Christopher Newport University in the fall.
