Madison Schools Support Fast-Turn Around Community Need

The Madison Emergency Services Association (MESA) was recently hit hard with food requests.  MCPS teacher asks that people consider a $10 purchase of a student-made rolling pin where all proceeds go to MESA - great for community and great for student learning.

MESA offers financial assistance to qualified families in need.  In Madison County, families without or about to be without electricity, gas, water or telephone service because of inability to pay bills; and elderly people faced with bills for medicines and medical care they cannot pay can turn to Madison Emergency Services Association (MESA) for help.

In response, Wetsel Middle School/Madison County High School teacher Joe Novack spearheads a quick-turn-around opportunity (and educational experience) with his students to provide.  Mr. Novack put out the following offer on March 24 that ends March 25.

Mr. Novack’s classes will make beautiful hand-turned Cherry Rolling Pins for a $10 donation.  These MCPS student-made rolling pins are approximately 19" long with 3" tapers on each end or rolling pins with no tapers.  They are also available in oak wood. 

After one day, there is enough interest for a $1,000 donation to MESA to help those in greatest need.  We hope this interest doubles before the close on March 25.

Wednesday, March 25 is the last day to place an order.  ALL educational opportunities belong to Madison students.  ALL proceeds will be donated to MESA.  ALL gratitude goes to Mr. Novack. -Superintendent Eberhardt

Contact Joe Novack at to place an order that will engage students and help teach them about the need for community service and pride.

MCHS Engineering Sweeps UVA KidWind Competition

Madison County High School Engineering students spent Saturday, March 21 competing at the UVA KidWind Competition at the School of Architecture in Charlottesville. The National KidWind Challenge at the University of Virginia is hosted by the Global Sustainability Initiative and the Virginia Center for Wind Energy.

The Kid Wind Challenge is a wind turbine design competition for middle and high school students. Teams of two to four students incorporate engineering and science to build powerful small-scale wind turbines and compete with other students from around the state to generate the most electricity. This event is a chance to get students involved and excited about alternative energy and sustainability. On top of gaining teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving skills, students learn key scientific concepts during their constructions.

The team is coached by MCHS STEM teacher Jessica Gooch.

Competition results:

  • 1st Place and Overall Best Blade Design.  MCHS Sweeping Thunder Twisters: Thomas Shifflett, Nic Smith, Isaiah Breckenridge, Rodney Fox, Skylar Colvin, and Madalyn Estes
  • 2nd Place and Judges Favorite Award.  MCHS The Other Team: Zavion Gentry, Jordan Jasper, and Drew Durham
  • 3rd Place.  MCHS The Corner Group: Aaron Snow, Tristan Posey, Phillip Hughes, Jacob Haynes, and Lily Lambert

Teams competed through the entire judging process in order to qualify for the East Coast Regionals, which includes an energy output test of windmills, having the documentation of design process reviewed, and a 15-minute closed interview with the judges.   Each team had to justify its design and demonstrate knowledge of wind energy on a larger scale. 

The judges were so impressed with our students, especially in the interview portion. - Coach Gooch

All champion teams are headed to the East Coast Regionals in April against other powerhouse teams from states like Ohio and New York.
