Madonna Gadelseed graduated in the Spring of 2016. Currently, she is continuing her education at the Northern Virginia Community College campus in Manassas, Virginia.
Madonna received two scholarships. The Rotary Club of Herndon gave her $2,000 scholarship, and the Centreville Presbyterian Church Community Service awarded her a $1,750 scholarship.
With these two scholarships she was able to pursue her interest in bio-science at NOVA. The scholarships covered her first two semesters in college. She is very appreciative of the Mountain View staff and teachers because they gave her hope, and “changed her life completely,” she says. One main person that impacted her life was her guidance counselor, Mr. Todd, who said, “Madonna just had a genuine interest in learning and that’s why she perused the dental program at Chantilly High. And I believe that’s why she will continue to do well in college.”
