Student of the Week: Hannah Holly

Curtis High School junior is making waves in the pool, and she's already thinking about her future in medicine.

Editor’s note: Every week, Patch will use five questions to profile a local student who has accomplished something awesome, whether it be serving in a leadership role; scoring the winning touchdown or earning an Eagle Scout badge. There are some great kids in our community, and we want to celebrate them!


This week, meet Hannah Holly, 16, a junior at Curtis High School. On Saturday, Hannah won the 100-yard freestyle at the South Puget Sound League Championships at Rogers High School.

1. What are some of your accomplishments that make you our Student of the Week? I am a varsity swimmer and water polo player. I was honored to be a captain last year as a sophomore. I am also involved with DECA and in the National Honor Society.

I have been swimming since eighth grade. I like individual sports. I like having no one else to blame when I mess up because I know what to do to fix it.

2. What are your future plans? I hope to attend a four-year university and play collegiate water polo and swim. I want to major in biology and study genetics. I like pleasing people; I just want to help people.

3. What are your plans for the rest of the season? I've never made it individually to state, so that's my goal. I'm close. I know I can do it if I put my mind to it. At districts, I just have to make sure I'm not focused on any other race than the one I'm swimming. I have to have tunnel vision.

4. In 10 years, I will be … living my dream life: graduated from college and somewhere helping people in some hospital, and if not, traveling the world.

5. One of my hidden talents is … being assertive. I speak my mind.
