MADISON LYBARGER, MADISON HIGH-SCHOOL SENIOR,WHO WORKS TWO JOBS AND HAS 4.0 GPA IS SURPRISED WITH $100,000.00 COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP RAINBOW OF ROLE MODELS – YOU GO, GIRL! 

When 18-year-old Madison Lybarger arrived at Westchester Academy for International Studies, she thought it was just going to be another ordinary day of school.  What she didn’t know is that she was about to receive the surprise of a lifetime.  She thought that the film crew and all of the cameras were at her school and in her classroom for a presentation about going to college and had no idea that they were all there for her.

During one of her morning classes, she learned that she was chosen by the American Productivity & Quality Center to be awarded a $100,000 college scholarship for everything she has overcome and accomplished in her life.

Lybarger was raised by a single mother and her grandparents, and has also learned to overcome her dyslexia. She works two jobs to help her family pay for the bills, all while managing a 4.0 GPA at school.  She is a competitive gymnast and then coaches after school.

“She’ll feel as if she’s been managing a lot of on her own. She likes to be independent and responsible and take care of herself as well as others,” Virginia Leiker, her grandmother, told KHOU 11. “If her grandpa was here, he would be exceedingly proud.”

She has already committed to attend the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, and looks forward to starting off on the right foot after graduation. Thanks to the scholarship, Lybarger won’t have to take out student loans and won’t have to start her career in debt, which is a big help to her and her family.
