Madison started at Georgia Highlands College in 2016, as a student. She graduated with her associate of science in business administration while also working part-time as a student worker. She learned her love for higher education while helping the business office with every day tasks. When she graduated from GHC in the Spring of 2019, she transferred to the University of West Georgia. She could no longer work her student job since she graduated, but she soon started a part-time position with Student Engagement. She brought her perspective of being a student, as well as extended her knowledge in leading a successful student life program. She currently works along side the Student Engagement Coordinator, Clifton Puckett. She and Clifton continue to work together to bring fresh ideas and events for students every semester. The events and programming are tailored to enhancing students’ campus life and to complement what students learn in the classroom.
