Madison Theil


2019 "Pass the Torch" Scholarship Recipient

As a child, Madison Theil feared she might have to give up the piano lessons she loved because her parents couldn’t afford them – but her music teacher Ms. Mary helped her find a way to continue. Now teaching alongside Ms. Mary at music camps, Madison continues to bear witness to this same commitment, resourcefulness and generosity of spirit, in a teacher who continually strives to ensure that no child misses out.

Here is Madison's story about Ms. Rekers, the teacher who inspired her.
