O’NEALS — Nothing makes our school happier than seeing students succeed in achieving their goals. Seeing kids heading out to the college of their dreams makes both the teachers and students very proud. While college is great, one of the most selfless things someone can do is to join one of the branches of the military to help protect our country. That’s the decision made by senior Hannah Flanagan.
“I want to join the Marines and follow in the footsteps of my parents and other family members, to see new places, and gain independence,” says Hannah.
“I was sworn in on February 21 in Sacramento by my grandfather who is a retired Marine Corps Colonel.” Hannah says she hopes to work for logistics or public affairs, but she hasn’t yet received an assignment.
Hannah’s drive for success comes from pride, a willingness to accept challenge and her independence. Not only a great student, she has played an array of sports and participated in extracurricular activities such as FFA, Leadership, and Link Crew. Hannah also organized and volunteered for activities including Dress a Girl Around the World and Campaign for Care.
Hannah Flanagan is a role model for students at Minarets High School and proof that you can achieve your goals if you work hard enough.
