News 3 Sports would like to congratulate our latest Classroom Champion, Madison Krause. The Round Top-Carmine High School Senior has a 4.0 GPA, and is currently ranked number two in her class.
Kelsey Mayer – Teacher
“Well to a certain extent academics do come somewhat easy to Madison. She's a very bright girl. However for her to be as successful as she is; it's definitely something that she has to strive for every single day. And she has to wake up and say I'm going to be motivated today, I'm going to work hard today in order to achieve what she has achieved so far.”
Madison is a member of the Round Top-Carmine Cubette Volleyball team. During her career she has been a 2-time State Champion, the district Co-MVP as a Setter, and a 1st Team All-State selection. Outside of sports, Kelsey is the Vice President of her class, a member of the Beta Club, and the Treasurer of the National FFA Organization. In FFA, (Future Farmers of America) Kelsey has been a Grand Champion for her Roosters, and a Champion Showman in poultry at the Fayette County Junior Livestock Show.
Rachelle Etzel - Coach
“Our younger athletes and students really look up to Madison because she's a leader by example. So she's not really abrasive she's more hands on. And I feel if their doing something wrong she can literally show them what their doing wrong, and then show them how they can correct it. Rather than just using her words and just being a vocal leader. And she takes the time out of her warm up to do that each day.”
Madison Krause - Student
“My parents motivate me to do my best all the time. My work ethic, I try to do everything to the best of my ability. And give enough time and effort towards everything to make sure I do it right and properly the first time, and not have to work and do it another time.”
After High School, Madison plans on attending Texas A&M University's, Mays Business School to pursue a business degree.
Congratulations to Madison Krause of Round Top-Carmine High School. This week’s News 3 Sports Classroom Champion!
