The Maddie Potts Foundation was established in November of 2017, less than 2 months after Maddie's sudden death on the Chariho soccer field of an unknown brain aneurysm. Maddie exemplified all attributes that a student athlete should possess. She always led by example, and dedicated her free time to helping her teammates, fellow art students and all others around her to be the very best they could be. She stood up for and reached out to new students/teammates that were not as likely to be able to stand up for themselves. The Maddie Potts Foundation was founded in order to carry on Maddie's legacy of kindness, compassion, hard work, inclusive leadership and perseverance, aka Maddie Mentality.
