Maddie Sanger


What is the charity you chose to represent?  

The MS (Multiple Sclerosis) Society Foundation because it is hard to see my mom go through struggles that nobody should go through. It means the world to me to show my mom that this disease is getting the attention it needs. 

Why do you best represent WTHS? 

I am always looking for ways to make the environment better at the high school. I always bring out the positive side of my classmates and I can easily spot someone that’s struggling and make them feel better.  

What is your favorite pick-up line? 

“Well, here I am. What are your two other wishes?” 

If you could pick anyone beside yourself to win, who would it be? 

I think that any one of the nominees would be a good choice because they each bring their own unique and positive qualities to win.  

Favorite food? 

Red velvet cupcakes 

Favorite movie? 

Mamma Mia 

Favorite music artist? 

Justin Bieber 

What has been your most embarrassing moment at WTHS? 

Driving my 1997 Toyota Camry to school! 

 What has been one of the most memorable aspects of your high school experience? 

Being nominated on homecoming court. It was the best feeling ever knowing that my classmates thought highly enough to vote for me. 

If you could change one thing about the world you live in, what would it be? 

That there was a cure for all autoimmune diseases. Seeing people watch their loved ones suffer is one of the worst feelings and I wish that could be eliminated.  

What advice would you give to underclassmen about high school? About life? 

Savor every moment, no matter how small it seems. And in life to keep your head up no matter what because being true to yourself is the best feeling in the world.  

What are your plans and goals for after high school? 

My plan after high school is to go to college down south. I plan to major in nursing to become a NICU nurse. I hope to work in a level one trauma center hospital.   

What teacher or faculty member has made the biggest impact on your high school career? 

Mr. Rosenello. I learned so much from his class that I would go home and educate my family about what we learned in class.   

Who in your life has had the biggest influence on you? 

My Grandmom because she has been through so many hardships through life and she still stays positive. She is an independent woman and I strive to be just like her one day. 

What did you learn from the pandemic? 

I learned what really matters in life: appreciating the little things in life every day and how important health is. 

What is one thing you cannot live without? 

My family. The unconditional love and support through the good times and bad times is the best feeling in the world.  

What is something about you that most people do not know? 

Although I am very social and love meeting new people, I get easily home sick when I am away for a decent amount of time.  

Describe yourself in three words: 

Trustworthy, open-minded and kind. 

If you could bring one person, thing, and appliance to a deserted island, what would it be? 

I would bring a coffee maker, my bed, and my best friend. I would bring my best friend because we have the same mindset and we work together well. I would bring my bed because I like to be comfortable when I sleep. I would bring a coffee maker because coffee keeps me going during times I do not want to keep going. 

What has been the best part about being on the Homecoming Court? 

The social interaction with everybody. And the feeling of being one of those 12 girls who got nominated is one of the best feelings ever. 

What animal do you most identify with? 

A dolphin because just like me, dolphins are known to be friendly and loyal.
