In August 2020, Madeleine competed for the title of National American Miss Alabama Jr. Teen. She was a Top 9 Semifinalist, and also won the Heart of Service award, as well as 3rd Runner Up to the Photogenic Optional, 2nd Runner up to the Casualwear Optional, and 1st Runner up to the Most Promising Model award.
Madeleine is a theatre student at the Alabama School of Fine Arts. She has always enjoyed performing, and has been in multiple plays. She was also in All-County Choir in 2016 and 2017. She is a Girl Scout Senior, and earned her Sliver Award in August 2019. Her project was titled P.E.E.R: Partnership Encourages Early Reading. She promoted early literacy by partnering with the school she attended for elementary school, and speaking to the parents of incoming kindergarteners at the Kindergarten Orientation about why reading is important, and ways for them to encourage their children to read.
This inspired her to create her pageant platform, “Find Your Way”. She aims to empower students to follow their dreams and achieve their goals.
