Maddie's Gift

Maddie was the daughter of Randy and Diane Nation.  Her life was touched by so many special people during her five years of life, as she received outstanding support from pre-school teachers, dance and swim instructors, physicians, speech and physical therapists, t-ball coaches, church members and many other wonderful people.

Maddie was diagnosed with Dandy-Walker Syndrome prior to birth.  The Dandy- Walker Alliance describes Dandy-Walker as a congenital bran malformation.  While it cannot be cure, treatment can alleviate some of its associated problems.  Longevity of a patient's life depends on the severity of the syndrome and associated malformations. 

The Madison Hope Nation Memorial Scholarship Fund was created in 2007 through the tremendous support of the community Maddie called home.  The mission of the scholarship fund was to give "Hope" to the future by providing scholarships to Lamar County graduating seniors who demonstrated a commitment to community service. 

In 2010, the scholarship fund shifted it's focus to providing scholarships for seniors either with special needs or who are identified in the special services program.  Beginning in May 2011, the goal of the foundation is to give "Hope" to the future by providing scholarships to graduating seniors in the Special Education program in Lamar County.

Maddie's Gift provides the only local scholarship to students of Lamar County that are currently receiving Special Education Services.  The scholarship can be used to assist the student in learning a trade or either earning college hours.

You can support Maddie's Gift, by participating in or contributing to the annual Red, White, and Blue golf tournament, or by giving at anytime to Maddie's Gift.
