Robert E. Lee High School in Midland was the proving ground for Haley Madewell. By her own admission, “I am a very strong headed girl and have made the decision that I will accomplish anything I want to do.” This attitude kept her going during her father’s difficult times as Haley helped her father live with the ups and downs of multiple sclerosis. Even so, she didn’t let caring for her father get in the way of her academic progression or being active in the community. Now, Haley is progressing toward becoming a petroleum engineer at Texas A&M University. Having to go through things she never expected didn’t stop Haley before and they don’t seem to now either.
