2022 Senior Spotlight: Madison Noonan
By: Kennedy Settje, a senior at Leigh High School
October 1st, 2003, was a great day for the Noonan family as they welcomed the arrival of their daughter, Madison Taylor Noonan.
Madison’s parents are Greg and the late Shawn Noonan. Her stepmom is Kim Noonan. Madison’s grandparents are Barb and the late Mike Noonan of Columbus and Lee and Kathy Seda of Platte Center.
Madison also has two siblings: Mackenzie Noonan (22) and Jordan Noonan (16). She also has 3 step siblings: Karlie (27), Sarah (24), and Meranda (20). She has two dogs named Duke and Coco.
Madison has participated in many activities throughout high school. She was involved in dance for 2 years, volleyball and Youth Advisory Committee for 3 years, and One-Act, FFA, FBLA, Travel Club, and Yearbook for 4 years. Madison is the FFA president this year.
One of Madison’s proudest high school accomplishments is completing so many college classes while still in high school. She will graduate high school with close to 30 college credits already completed. She plans on attending Bryan College of Health Science in Lincoln to become a Physician’s Assistant.
Outside of school, Madison enjoys fishing and four wheeling. She loves Texas Roadhouse and going to rodeos and concerts with friends. Her favorite TV show is The Ranch and she enjoys listening to country music, specifically “My Kinda Livin” by Hardy.
Three words that best describe Madison are happy, hardworking, and compassionate. Madison is always willing to lend a helping hand and works hard in the classroom and all of her extracurricular activities.
Madison sees herself working in a clinic or hospital with a family of her own someday. Some other goals she has for her future are to graduate college with good grades, buy a nice pickup, and build a nice house someday.
Madison’s advice to underclassmen would be, “Go out and have fun, don't let other peoples’ opinions stop you.”
We wish Madison the best of luck in all of her future endeavors!
