Saber Spotlight – Alumna Madeleine Blandin

As part of the Central DeWitt High School class of 2015, Madeleine Blandin is proud of her Central DeWitt Community School roots.  From the various dual credit opportunities she took advantage of while at CDHS to becoming the first intern at the Dewitt Chamber and Development Company, she continues to blaze a path of success. Below is an excerpt from a recent professional article Madeleine penned, “Small Town, BIG opportunities”.

“I have determined through the years that, without exceptional teachers, parents, mentors, and employers I would not be the young professional that I am today. My education and these various local opportunities have shaped my knowledge and experience, but my mentors have encouraged my passions and interests. Ultimately, Central DeWitt Community School District, First Central State Bank, Ohnward Bancshares, Inc., Iowa State University, my friends and family and the DeWitt Community provided me with opportunities for growth. I will be forever thankful that I was born in a SMALL town with BIG opportunities.”
