Maddie Hetlage

Aerospace Engineering, senior
Maddie is a junior from St. Louis, Missouri. This is her second year as a member of the vehicle squad, where she is in charge of the computer modeling of the rocket. This year, Maddie is also serving as the Educational Outreach Lead. A child at heart, she has loved sharing her love of rocketry with local students. She hopes to contribute to the space industry after graduation, particularly in the area of rocket propulsion but also has dreams of becoming a professor. Outside of Rocket Team, Maddie is the vice president of her residence hall, a leader for the Anchor program in Campus Ministry, a member of the University’s Orientation Steering Committee, and a teaching assistant for a Sophomore computing course. When she isn’t hurrying off to meetings or finishing up engineering homework at late hours of the night, Maddie can be found running along St. Joseph’s River, checking out local restaurants, and meeting new people.
