Madison Hale

University of Wisconsin-Superior

Madison Hale, a first-year student at the University of Wisconsin-Superior, has captured our attention as an active leader who possesses a drive to create meaningful change in others' lives.

As a young woman, Madison's greatest passion has been in educating others on how to positively engage in our democracy. Before enrolling at UW-Superior, she educated other high school youth on how to take part in government. As a freshman, she has already begun serving as a leader to other students by assuming a role with UW-Superior's Student Government Association and serving as a delegate lobbying in Madison on behalf of citizen selected issues in Northern Wisconsin. And, within her coursework, Madison has played an instrumental role in organizing a Refugee for a Day exhibit, an experiential education simulation for other students and the off-campus community. In her future community engagement, she plans to volunteer with veterans and engage in finding ways to eradicate homelessness.

Madison has jumped right into serving as a civically engaged leader for all students, at UW-Superior and beyond. Engagement in the Newman Civic Fellows program will give Madison the tools to further develop into a motivated, lifelong civic leader and her post-graduation career in social work.

Personal Statement

My name is Madison Hale, I'm a freshman at the University of Wisconsin-Superior. I'm a first generation low-income student pursuing a degree in social work. I chose this major because I love to help people and see the difference I can make in the world no matter how small it appears to others. Since starting at UWS, I've had the pleasure of being involved in many great opportunities and events such as; the Nobel Peace Prize forum, 2 refugee simulations (one I walked through, one I got to lead others through), Student Government as an elected Senator, and working at the Veterans and Nontraditional student center. I started getting involved in government because I wanted to learn more about and be part of, the process of making a positive change in our communities.

I'm currently interested in working with the homeless and/or veterans. I would like to work with these demographics because I feel they tend to be misunderstood and overlooked. My hope is that once I graduate I will be able to join AmeriCorps*VISTA and put my passion into action. I believe that if you do what you love you'll never work a day in your life.
