Madelynn Mac Donald, a sophomore at Mohave High School in Bullhead City, has been selected to serve as the Governor for Interact District 5495 for 2019-20.  Madelynn is, in fact, the third Mac Donald to serve as an Interact DG, having been preceded in that position by her sisters, Raquel and Bridgett.
The fact that Madelynn won the “Young Wonder Award” this year, as a one of the regional community achievement awards presented by the Laughlin Chamber of Commerce, is reflective of her many widely-recognized leadership achievements and her community service.  After developing an award-wining Interact club at Fox Creek Junior High during her year as Club President, she moved on to become the only freshman selected to serve on the Interact District Council last year.  Next, she applied for, and was selected as the youngest member of the 2018 interact Ambassador to Kenya team.  There she distinguished herself by writing a daily blog of the team’s adventure in international service, which appeared on the front page of the Mohave Valley Daily News, the regional newspaper, every day the team was in Africa.  Fittingly, she served as the Council’s Achievement and Awards Chair this year, in addition to coordinating the district’s services to the junior high and middle school Interact clubs.
The DG-Elect has already selected the members of her Executive Leadership Team for next year’s District Council.  Asa Marette, from the Interact Club of Mingus Union High School in Cottonwood, will serve as the Executive Assistant Governor.  Madelyn has also chosen Anna Kuzminsky, form the Interact Club of Mohave High School in Bullhead City, to serve as her District Secretary.
