Leo Student with School Board and Superintendant

Leo High School senior Madison Turpin has started her career as a book author. Turpin, 18, self-published “WIRED: The Original Resistance,” the first in her planned five-book science fantasy series. She’s already a third of the way through writing the second book in the series. She has already sold over 200 copies of her book since its release.  30% of the profits, she receives from her book will be dispersed amongst organizations that help raise suicide awareness, fight poverty, and fight human trafficking.

She started writing novels when she was 11 years old.  Madi has a love for language and has written for her school newspaper, The Lion’s Tale, where she’s editor, and has worked as an intern for The News-Sentinel.

She plans to double-major in writing and psychology at Taylor University.

Madi has won a Gold Key for her writing in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, 3 consecutive years. She has participated in the Appleseed Writing Project’s youth summer camps at Indiana University-Purdue University and has attended a writing conference in St. Louis. She’s also active in her church, Grace Point Church of the Nazarene.

Madi, on behalf of the Board of School Trustees, Superintendent Hissong and the entire EACS community, we say well done and keep up the great work!  You make us proud!
