Shannon King, Social Studies Teacher, said, “Madison Day is a wonderful student and I have enjoyed having her in my Social Studies classes over the last three years.
Madison realizes that success can only be obtained through hard work and by approaching each task with a positive attitude.
However what impresses me most about Madison is her awesome videography work.
Madison is so creative and possesses the ability to enthrall audiences with the films she has created bragging on the community and the schools of Bridge City.
Equally impressive to me is Madison’s willingness to step outside her comfort zone and appear “in front of the camera” as well as behind it.
Madison wowed us all last spring in her Stark Oratory performance when she won first place.
I just know that Madison has found her calling and I fully expect to see great things from Madison in the future.”
Cheryl Royal, Director of Student Activities, said, “Congratulations to our Madison Day! President of Bridge City High School’s Student Body – Madison Day is an incredibly talented young lady-she is intelligent, articulate, and creative, has great character and is above all else compassionate and kind. Madison is not a student that is one way in the hallways and another depending on her surroundings. She is the first one to show up, first one to volunteer, and first one to make sure that a job is done to her standard of excellence. Madison is very well deserving of this honor and the sky is the limit for this young lady who is beautiful inside and out.”
Stacy Webb, Theatre/Media Communications, said, “As Madison’s BCTV teacher (visual media and announcements class), I have had the pleasure to watch her grow in the past three years. Madison has an artistic eye, and the uncanny ability to tell a complete story with video images. If I had to describe her style, I would say that she captures everything that makes BCHS great. She brings pride, and a feeling of comradery, and community pride to Bridge City. Madison’s contribution to BCHS school spirit is commendable. She is a treasure.”
When asked about her future plans, Madison said, “I plan to attend SFA (Stephen F. Austin University) earning a degree in mass communications and pursue a career in cinematography.”
