2019 Scholarship Awards
Hannah Mitchell graduated this year from Pine Creek High School and has been working in suicide prevention efforts since her Sophomore year of high school. She has been personally touched by suicide by the loss of her best friend. She saw a large disconnect between students and adults in the prevention efforts, and joined a group of her peers in the start up of the nonprofit, Project Reasons. The last two years, Hannah has planned and executed two large Art Gallery’s to raise money for different nonprofit organizations that help teens struggling with mental health and suicide, as well as promoting art through therapy. Her efforts have raised more that $2,500, and she plans on continuing her efforts in the future. She will be attending Grand Canyon University studying Buisness Administration with a minor in Communication, with a goal of starting another nonprofit in the future.
