Maddy Todd, In-Class Writer

Maddy Todd is a current senior at XCP. This is her first year on Xpress, and she looks forward to presenting contemporary news to her fellow students at Xavier as an on-staff writer. She is as versatile as she is hardworking throughout all of her endeavors, and she never delivers anything less than her best work. When she isn’t focusing on her studies, you can find her either making others laugh through her witty remarks or practicing long jump on the track. Although she is laid back and passive most of the time, Maddy is also very dedicated to her tasks and will pursue them tirelessly until they are finished.
