Sophomore Madeline Palmer’s favorite quote is, “Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.” –C.S. Lewis. In five years, she sees herself in college and after already serving a mission. She thinks it is very important to have a plan, but also to go with the flow of life and be willing to adjust our plans based on what happens to us.
The MMHS Shakespeare ensemble scene won first place in our division out of 20 schools at the Utah Shakespeare Festival competition this last weekend, which is one of the biggest divisions in the entire competition.

Some of these scenes have upwards of 50 students in them so this is a big honor, and it came with a $1000 scholarship!
