This week’s Student Feature is Madeleine Lee! Madeleine is a Sophomore in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. On campus she is involved in optiMize and Central Student Government. She is currently working with the Joyce Ivy Foundation as a Senior Fellow! The Joyce Ivy Foundation is a non-profit, 501c3 organization committed to the academic advancement and leadership development of young women from the Midwest. In her role, Madeleine is responsible for leading a team of young women in developing programming for the Fellows cohort. This year, her team has led several projects that aim to create a fun, collaborative space within the Joyce Ivy community, including the Joyce Ivy Foundation Blog, virtual coffee chats, and career-based mentorship groups. When Madeleine was a junior in high school, she was awarded a scholarship by the Joyce Ivy Foundation to attend an academic summer program at Brown University. This formative experience would not have been possible without the Foundation’s support. For this reason, she enjoys being able to pay it forward as a Senior Fellow and work alongside her peers to help make education more accessible to young women in the Midwest.
