She said she also had reading competitions between her and her siblings, so reading “is big in the family.”

Hawes mother, Connie Hawes, said that Hawes had been involved and winning spelling bees since she was in the second grade.

“She loves school and she’s a very happy person,” said Connie Hawes. “Everyday she describes as ‘the best day ever.’”

Hawes said she was torn between wanting to be a meteorologist, a pediatrician or a singer when she grows up.

“Usually she seems rather shy, but not when it comes to singing,” said Hawes’ mother. “She’s also very creative. When she was running in the elections for BETA her slogan was ‘Got Madison? It does the student body good.’”

Hawes said she still wasn’t sure what college she was going to yet, but she was excited at the prospect of continuing her education in any field she chose.
