Madison continues to grow as a leader and good citizen. Her future goals are to be an actress, novelist and missionary. She is an active member of her school community as a cheerleader, volleyball player and a member of the band. She also runs track. To give back to her community, she volunteers at the Boys and Girls Club.
Madison was Ms. Terrell Jr. Pre-Teen in 2011-2012. In 2011, Mayor Hal Richards presented her a proclamation naming Nov. 15 Madison Johnson Day. She was the state’s actress winner and the National Miss Spokes Model 2011-2012 and National American Miss Actress 2011-2012. She won Miss Texas Pre-Teen in 2014. She crowned her successor in 2015. To foster her immediate goal, Madison plans to successfully compete in the 2016 National American Miss Texas pageant this summer.
One of Madison’s favorite scriptures is:
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
This year the festival will feature a horse show and a motorcycle ride in addition to all the other activities planned. School bands, car clubs, bike clubs, dance lines, church youth groups, girls scouts and others are welcome to participate.
