We are excited to announce that junior Hannah Graham is being recognized by Congressman French Hill as one of this year’s Educational Awards Program recipients. The Program, instituted by Rep. Hill, is designed to recognize high school students who have shown significant commitments to academics, their school and the community. Due to COVID-19, there is no in-person award ceremony, but Representative Hill's office made a recognition video for the students. See Bauxite's own Hannah Graham at 19:04 minutes into the video. Congratulations, Hannah! https://house.box.com/s/a4lbpqnu2lbazwj55fmr1cwlchyqv05o
