May 2021

Spelman College Top Ten Graduate 2021 Madison AllenNew Jersey native Madison Grace Allen, C'2021, decided after her visit to the campus that Spelman College would guide her to the path of Black excellence and sisterhood. Allen comes from a large family of HBCU graduates and she was proud to add Spelman College to her family’s list.

As a physics major and mathematics minor, she was able to broaden her experiences by attending professional conferences and completing research during her summers. Allen served as vice president of the Physics Club and pursued her love of dance by training with the Spelman Dance Theater and volunteering as an assistant dance instructor at the West End Fine Arts Center. She is also a member of the Physics Honor Society, Sigma Pi Sigma, along with Alpha Lambda Delta, Phi Beta Kappa, and the Ethel Waddell Githii Honors Program. 

Allen will attend The University of Michigan to pursue a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering which will entail research in electric propulsion. She aspires to travel the world, and maybe space one day, with hopes of becoming NASA administrator.
