Hannah Price is the daughter of Sara and Cody Price and will be attending Cisco College to pursue a career in elementary education while also cheerleading at Wrangler sporting events.
Hannah got to be one of the first Mineral Wells High School graduates to have a private ceremony as school officials planned around COVID-19 restrictions. While it, unlike any graduation she had attended before it proved to be an exceptional experience.
“I enjoyed the private graduation because I thought my parents and family could see me better. This sounds bad, but I didn’t have to sit through a bunch of boring speeches. It was very special, and I am grateful to the Mineral Wells ISD for offering it.” Price said.
Hannah’s high school activities have included track and field and volleyball in her freshman and sophomore years. She has been a cheerleader all four years in high school and served on the student council.
When asked to focus on a favorite memory, Hannah admitted that it would be too hard to do.
“All throughout school, I have enjoyed being with my friends and my younger cousins, so we have made many memories. It’s too hard to pick out one,” Price said.
Hannah’s biggest regret while in high school is also a solid message for any student.
“I wish I had made better friends, who would have made me make better choices. I had some friends in the past that I wish I had not become friends with. I know that sounds bad, but I am truthful. I think people need to realize that maybe their friend group is not the right one for them, and there are other choices out there. I wish I had signed up for the National Honor Society too. I forgot to do that,” Price said.
True to her cheerleading career, Hannah has this message for her fellow seniors:
“We need to keep staying positive, and even though this year kind of ended up badly, we are going to get through this. Stay Positive!”
