Here are some of Hanna's school memories:

Who was your favorite teacher and why?

My favorite teacher was my middle school then high school choir teacher, Mrs. Gwen Witten Upchruch.

What was your favorite subject in school and why?

I loved speech class! Something about writing & telling a story resonated with me. I also enjoyed our school tv class, where I learned to shoot video & edit. It makes sense with my career that these two classes stood out as favorites.

What was your favorite school supply and why?

I always loved mechanical pencils. I doodled a lot in my notebooks & if I broke the lead there was no need to get up in front of the class & sharpen the pencil!

What was your favorite extracurricular activity?

I was class president & passionate about cheerleading, gymnastics & track. However, despite my inability to sing... choir was probably my favorite extracurricular because that's where I met my husband (don't worry, we got married ten years after high school)
