Activities and achievements: Hannah is an accomplished athlete. She is on the basketball team, but her focus is on volleyball. She has been captain of the volleyball team for the past two years, plays on the Club Storm travel volleyball team and has been selected annually for the First Team Coalfield conference since she was a sophomore. Hannah also won the West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission's sportsmanship award last year.

The experience has inspired her to study early childhood education in college and possibly consider a career as a preschool teacher.
