AIA PRESS CENTER
Madison Joanne Fields
Joseph City High School
Student of the Year
Madison’s academic record reflects near perfection: an exceptional attendance record, a cumulative GPA among the highest in her class, and National Honor Society standing all while completing ‘honors’ courses to meet her graduation requirements. Miss Fields combines a bright intellect with an uncompromising work ethic, unwavering determination and fierce competitiveness. Madison has participated in numerous sports throughout her years at Joseph City; most of which were at the varsity level. She has also been involved with the Theater/Drama program all four years at Joseph City and has contributed to the Varsity Cheer squad.
Madison is personable and possesses many characteristics of leadership. Demonstrating these abilities through student government, she will be concluding her service as President of Student Council at Joseph City. Maintaining as high a level of energy and commitment in her position in Student Council as she has given to her academic and athletic endeavors has led her to become an outstanding role model to her peers.

Individual Sport Classification Process 2015-2018:
On Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2015, the AIA Executive Board approved a recommendation that Individual Sports Division and Section Assignments remain as they currently are and allow the sport advisory committees to recommend what schools should be promoted up every two years (three years for the first cycle) based on sectional and/or state tournament success of the course of the last five to six years. All member schools would still have the ability to appeal their current placement for individual sports.
