The Chant

Madeline Powers
Madeline “Maddie” Powers continues her career in Journalism as a senior at North Cobb, having published almost 50 pieces . She moves up this year, acting as one of our copy editors at The Chant. She is excited to take on this new challenge and edit more than her heart’s desire. 

She is truly one from the 70s, embracing the tye dye and jamming out to all and only the top hits from that era including “Friend of the Devil,” “Deal,” and “New Speedway Boogie,” by The Grateful Dead, not to mention her weird fascination with sunflowers, especially in a large field. She and her family all belong in that era, going to music festivals for weekends in their camper, and enjoying life in general as peaceful and light as it can be. Her happy attitude and constant smile bring positivity and sunshine everywhere she goes. 

When she thinks of what she wants to do with her life, her 70’s like tendencies stop, she wants to save lives and to change the world of medicine as much as she can so that more children and people in general can lead a long and healthy life. Her creative tendencies and strong innovation speak wonders for what she will be able to accomplish now and in the future.
