MILLBURY — Madelyn DoMoe of Lake High School will be attending Owens Community College next fall to study radiology and minor in business.
“I am majoring in radiology because it’s an in-demand job and I want to help people, and I am minoring in business in order to help myself run the cheerleading program,” DoMoe said.
It is not often in a person’s life that they reach their dreams before they even graduate high school, but DoMoe has. Over the past year, she has taken over as the head of Ohio Elite All Star in Millbury, a cheer and gymnastics studio for kids 3 to 18 years old.
“I was asked to run the cheer program at Ohio Elite Allstars in Millbury starting in June. Ever since kindergarten, I’ve dreamed of becoming a cheerleading coach, and now I’m living my dream to its fullest potential!” DoMoe said.
She attended the early childhood education program at Penta Career Center and participated in early job placement at Inspirations Early Learning Center where she is a head teacher. She also has her own businesss called Bedazzled Designs by Maddie where she makes keychains and bag charms.
“In my free time, I am either at cheer, coaching, hanging out with my friends, at Cedar Point, crafting, or working. I am a part of Jet Set, which is a show choir at my school,” she said.
DoMoe was also in the FCCLA at Lake High School. She and her team came in second in the state with the project “Promote and Publicize FCCLA,” which will send them to Denver, Colorado, in June.
“I got involved in FCCLA when my FCS teacher and lab teacher came up to me while I was in math class and asked if I would be interested in joining Family Career and Community Leaders of America. I was able to become a Region 1 executive council member in Ohio and build leadership skills and friendships that will last a lifetime. I was able to go to San Diego last year to further my leadership skills,” DoMoe said.
“Penta has been such an amazing school, and I would recommend a career tech school to everyone considering it,” DoMoe said.
“I would like everyone to know that you need to work hard in order to achieve your dreams. Kindergarten Maddie would be so proud of 18-year-old Maddie. Learn to listen and listen to learn; you can improve so much when you listen to other people’s words.”
