Madelyn Holm

Senior Madelyn Holm is doing her Plan of Concentration on the role of community service in education, and she has been a living example over her years at Marlboro. Now Maddie has been recognized for her commitment to community with an Engaged Student Award from Vermont Campus Compact. “Maddie lives and shares what it means to engage in one’s community,” said Jodi Clark, Marlboro’s director of housing and residential life. “Her passion and dedication to getting others to join her in caring for our community is truly inspiring.” Maddie began her senior year by designing and leading a Bridges orientation trip for incoming students that engaged them in service activities in the area, and in October she assisted with the local Empty Bowls fundraiser for the Brattleboro Area Drop-In Center. She has also worked with the local Montessori school, talking with students about different kinds of community engagement and making ceramic bowls with them for the Empty Bowls Dinner. Along with engaged students from other Vermont colleges, Maddie’s work and accomplishments will be honored at a VCC Engaged Campus Form in Burlington, Vermont, on April 12.
