Senior Spotlight - Hannah O'Connell

Hannah O’Connell is the daughter of Jennifer and Eric O’Connell, and beloved sister of Tyler and Cameron. Hannah’s farm has all kinds of critters running around, including her horse Tri, Fluff the Cat, and her two dogs, Bear and Kevin. Hannah has gone to MVAO her whole life, and you can’t miss her cruising around in her pearl white Ford F-150. Her favorite teacher throughout high school has been Miss Petersen because she has a true understanding of her students and she enjoys her teaching style.

Hannah wants to be remembered as the girl who would always stand up for what is right, no matter what. She thought back to her high school memories, and although she has had some crazy memories in her school days, her favorite is when Konner Hoefling and Cy Handke tried to do a flip in PE and Konner landed right on his head. Hannah’s favorite quote is, “If it was easy, everyone would do it!” by Tom Hanks. She loves this quote because she got it from her dad. Hannah plans to attend Iowa State University in the fall and then plans to go back and work on her family's farm. We wish you the best, Hannah!
