Shannon King, Social Studies Teacher, said, “Hannah Wiegreffe is a wonderfully dedicated and talented student. As a leader, both in the classroom and the athletic arena, Hannah embodies a "servant's heart leader" as she looks for the welfare of her team, her classmates and other she encounters throughout her day.”
Rebecca Peveto, Adaptive PE Teacher and Varsity Volleyball Coach, said, “As her Varsity Volleyball Coach for 4 years, I have had the privilege of knowing Hannah not only as a student-athlete, but also for the extraordinary young woman she is.
I have seen many examples of her talent and have been impressed by her diligence and work ethic.
Hannah was chosen as our Team Captain by her teammates her senior year, and has been a vital part of her teams’ accomplishments, which include 2 playoff appearances.
Her above average performance is a direct result of her hard work and strong focus.
She is a young lady with exceptional character and conducts herself with class and respect all the time.
Hannah truly epitomizes everything that is good about the human spirit.
The trait that has impressed me the most about Hannah is her undying desire to give back to the community.
It is apparent that between her extensive involvement in school, church, and extracurricular activities, Hannah’s spare time is quite limited.
She has willingly chosen to spend her time outside of school helping others who are in need.
I am confident that she will continue to excel in whatever she pursues because of her drive to succeed, proven abilities, and impressive academic achievements.”
Cathy Riley, English Department Chair and Director of Bridge City Strutters, said, “Hannah Wiegreffe is absolutely one of my favorite students because she is a stellar student who focuses on accuracy and details in her classes.
One might see HANNAH playing volleyball and basketball in the gym, planning activities throughout her school or community, discussing the “big” picture when involved with Socratic seminars, or helping children at various mission trips.
Compassionate and understanding, HANNAH WIEGREFFE demonstrates a positive influence on others uncompromising her morals and integrity and is an outstanding role model for others to emulate.
As she embarks on attaining her goal as a physical therapist, HANNAH knows first-hand what it takes to not only heal the body but also the spirit.
Congratulations to a worthy student- HUZZAH, HANNAH.”
When asked about her future plans, Hannah said, “I plan to attend McNeese State University to pursue a career in Physical Therapy.”
She received gift certificates and gifts from: COS Printing, Wellspring Credit Union, Tiger Rock Martial Arts of Bridge City, Sabine Federal Credit Union, Sabine River Ford, Neches Federal Credit Union, Bridge City Walmart, Best Day Spa, 5Point Credit Union, and Massage & Spa by Christy.
