 Hannah Cress, age 18, was born on January 21, 2000, in Tribune, Kansas. Hannah lives together with her parents Tim and Elizabeth and has five siblings: Peter, Natalie, Tiffany, Emma, and Wilson. Her hobbies are playing guitar and piano and watching Netflix.

Her favorite movies are Marvel movies and her favorite song is ‘’Something Just Like This’’ by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay. Her favorite food is mac and cheese and her favorite sport is basketball, but only from the sidelines. Her favorite subject is Algebra, because it is easy and makes sense. Her favorite teacher is Mr. Bretz, because he understands her sarcasm.

Next year, Hannah is going to study Accounting at Oklahoma Christian University. Her favorite school memory is Bailey copying his face on the copy machine and her most embarrassing moment was when she accidentally backed up into Echo’s truck.

Hannah's advice to underclassmen is, "Get good grades and don't let anything distract you from your goals." If Hannah could take something from Weskan with her to college she would take some of the teachers because they are easy to talk to and they are happy to help you with whatever you need. She will miss her class the most from high school because it is such a small class and they are all close to each other.

Her oldest sister, Natalie, inspires her the most, because she started her adult life moving to another country, but made the most of it and became very successful even though everything was new and scary. Hannah said that is how she wants to live her life too.

In ten years, Hannah sees herself working in an accounting firm and living somewhere where she can see the mountains. We would like to wish Hannah good luck in college and accomplishing her goals!
