Gold Awardee Gives Facelift to Scottsboro Church

Hannah’s church needed some basic carpentry repairs, cleaning out a storage area and painting. For her Gold Award project Hannah chose to give her church, Hollis Memorial, a “shot in the arm in both cosmetics and spirit.” She recruited some help to clean out a room that had been used for storage, paint, power wash and truly give the church a facelift. A mural was painted in one of the rooms that will be used for Sunday school. Her firsthand experience in seeing a need, finding a team and accomplishing the project helped her to create a powerful presentation to inspire others about how they can make a difference in their own communities. “I will be speaking to groups to let them know that you can make a difference in the lives of your neighbors,” said Hannah.

Hannah, a graduate of Scottsboro High School, is the daughter of Gina and Gary of Scottsboro and is a freshman at Alabama A & M University.
