This month we highlight two students from Mullen High School who are serving on this year’s Youth Advisory Board: Nolan Cooper and Madeline Penning.
As a senior, Nolan is the acting President of the Lion’s Heart National Service Organization, a recipient of the Mullen Torch Award, and a member of the National Honor Society. He enjoys leading, mentoring, and collaborating with others and volunteers as a judge and mentor for Aspen Academy’s business competition. After completing several entrepreneurial courses as well as a semester of statistics at UCLA, Nolan started his own business called Perfect Promposal (perfectpromposal.com).
Madeline is a sophomore who participates on her school’s Speech and Debate Team (she qualified for State Championship her freshman year), as well as the Liturgy Committee and French Club. She also serves on Student Council and is a member of the Girl’s Lacrosse Team. One of her passions is teaching and mentoring young children, and sharing their enthusiasm. That passion led her to work as a Summer Playologist at the Children’s Museum of Denver in 2019, engaging children at various play stations throughout the museum.
Both of these students exhibit the type of leadership qualities that will serve them well as members of Youth Advisory Board and in their future endeavors.
