She was one of two youngsters in February recognized as a “Student Spotlight” winner at the Neighborhood House – aka the Ollie. Young members are recognized for their good behavior, being kind, caring and considerate, as well as just being good kids overall. In addition, she was the recipient of a brand new bike donated by the law firm of Goodwin and Procter LLP for her exemplary behavior. Her name is Madison Kronmiller.
Madison, 6, is the daughter of Pamela Moriarty and Keith Kronmiller. She also has a “Nana” Joanne, “Grandma” Gayle, and a loving great-grandmother, Ethel.
Madison is in the first grade at the Tynan Elementary School. Her favorite subject is science and someday she wants to be a teacher. Her favorite color is hot pink and she loves eating pizza with grandma.
In the world of sports, Madison is learning how to skate at the Neponset Rink in Dorchester. She also plays soccer. If Madison’s not home helping her grandma clean the house or recycling, she’s at the Ollie having fun, doing her homework, playing with other kids, and receiving help from the dedicated staff members.
“I like coming here after school,” she said. “They (the staff) help me with my homework and are fun to be with. I like it here so much.”
Feelings are mutual as far as Kristen DeVoy is concerned, the school age program director at the Ollie.
“She’s very well-behaved and awesome,” DeVoy said, “She’s such a good girl…polite…kind…and loving. She’s never a problem and plays well with other kids. Madison’s respectful to kids and staff and overall during the past three years as a member she has been just great.”
