Hi everyone! My name is Madelyn Augustine, and I am currently a senior at Millard West High School. I am an aspiring student journalist for both the Prowler Yearbook and the Catalyst Newspaper. This year I was named Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Prowler and the News Director and Social Media Manager for the Catalyst. I am also one of the anchors for the MWHS Wildcat News. This was my first year on the newspaper staff and my second on the yearbook staff.


Although I’ve only been participating in journalism for a couple of years, I have already learned so much. Between both newspaper and yearbook I have had the opportunity to expand my knowledge and work on multiple platforms of journalism. Throughout this site you will find my journalistic portfolio. All of my work from throughout the years is on display. I will be the first to admit that my work is not perfect, but that’s okay! I am a firm believer that you learn best through experience and being able to acknowledge your weaknesses. Over the course of the past couple of years I have fallen in love with journalism. Hopefully, you will see my passion shine through my work, so welcome to my portfolio and enjoy!
