Meet the bubbly and beautiful, Hannah Walker, Class of 2021 senior from Washington Community High School!  Just being in her presence makes a person HAPPY!! Her smile is so radiant and I adore her so much!

Hannah would describe her personality as friendly and caring towards everyone. Most of the time, she is outgoing but needs to be very trusting of the people she is around to really show her true self.

After high school, Hannah plans on attending ICC initially and then transferring to a four year university to major in Business Administration and Management.  When she was a little girl, she wanted to be a professional dancer!

Through high school, Hannah has had two favorite teacher.  “My English teacher, Mrs.Dayhoff is one of my favorite teachers because of how nice and relatable she is to her students. She never fails to make sure we know everything there is to know! My other favorite teacher is Mr. Schermerhorn, my US History teacher! He is the best! He always is by far the best teacher to help students and really explain the material we are reading. Both of these teachers are honestly just the best!!”

Hannah’s favorite school event to attend is Community Night. It’s a night when the entire school shows up to Five Points and puts on a show!  “It’s so fun and a great time to spend with friends!”  In school, Hannah is a Pantherette, participates in Colorguard, and WCLS.  Outside of school, she participate in competitive dancing as well as numerous St. Jude activities and fundraisers with her mom.

Hannah’s hobbies include listening to music (I can attest to this.. play music and she is moving, singing, and dancing constantly. It’s adorable). She loves to hang out with her friends and watch movies.

“My perfect day would be waking up around 10:30am and getting ready to go out to eat with my friends. We would hang out all day just doing everything we could. I just love spending time with my friends and every moment together is the best.”

Three things on my bucket list: 1. Travel outside of the US again 2. Make it into a great college 3. Go skydiving
