Strength in the Community Scholarship Winner, Madeline Roberts

Meet Madeline Roberts, one of 12 winners of the FOX 21 Strength in the Community Scholarship.

The Strength in the Community Scholarship was created to help students reach their goals to pursue higher education in a time of rising tuition costs. Twelve finalists will receive $1,000, but one will trade in their $1,000 for a $10,000 check.

Madeline is a Denfeld High School senior, as well as a talented ukulele player.

“When I got stressed out [applying] for the scholarships, I picked up the instrument,” she stated. “I’m sure I’ll play in college when things get more stressful.”

Madeline plans to attend the College of St. Scholastica this fall and begin her journey into the medical field.

Madeline and the other finalists will find out June 6 if they’ve won the big $10,000 check.
