District 45 graduate Maddie Schulte recently donated several of her original paintings to North Elementary School’s Learning Resource Center (LRC). Schulte attended North Elementary School before completing eighth grade at Jefferson Middle School in 2012. She graduated from Willowbrook High School in 2016, and is now a senior at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Schulte (left) is pictured with Sandi Henderson, North’s LRC Specialist. Henderson will hang Schulte’s artwork in a prominent location for students and staff to enjoy. “The library here [at North] is such a special place, where students can embrace education, creativity and imagination,” said Schulte, who completed and donated the paintings as a way to thank Henderson for everything she does for the community. “I hope it inspires the bright students here at North School,” added Schulte of her donation. Schulte will graduate from the University of Illinois in May with a bachelor’s degree in social work and a minor in Spanish. She plans to pursue a master’s degree in advanced clinical social work, with a concentration in school social work. She hopes to work in public education as a school social worker.
