“Thank you! Thank you! Thank You!” echoed through the halls last winter as Molly McFadden prepared Meryl Streep’s Grammy’s acceptance speech for her Public Address event during the 2019 speech season. Her obsession with Meryl Streep doesn’t stop there. McFadden loves all of her movies and will watch “Mama Mia” religiously. She is very involved in the school system and does many activities: football/wrestling cheerleading, fall play, spring musical, speech and debate, choir, show choir, journalism, NHS, junior class officers, tennis, Villa Dance Company and is the student representative of the Atlantic City Council. While being involved with all of these activities McFadden gets to see her favorite part of this school, school spirit and fun. She loves laughter, whether she is causing it or being a part of it. Her job as an editor is writing the news stories that are put up on the AHS Needle website. She loves to write opinion pieces and profile stories. A motto she would love to live by is "think positive and choose happy." In the future, she would like to attend college to become a teacher and hopefully return to Atlantic bringing her creative ideas.
