Hiram resident Hannah Seawell was recognized as an honor student during her three semesters as a Move On When Ready (MOWR, now Dual Enrollment) student at the University of West Georgia, gaining credits towards a career in medicine while still in high school.
“(Dual Enrollment) has not only saved me and my family time and money,” Seawell said, “but it has also opened my mind to burgeoning ideas and given me confidence to pursue more challenging things.”
The South Paulding High School junior is now in Washington D.C. after being appointed by U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., to participate in the U.S. Senate Page Program.
“I am proud to welcome Hannah to our nation’s capital and into the highly competitive United States Senate Page Program,” said Isakson to the Marietta Daily Journal. “I expect great things from her and know she will represent the state of Georgia and our office well.”
Seawell previously served in the Georgia State House of Representatives and Georgia State Senate Page programs. She is still taking academic classes each morning before reporting to the Senate floor to distribute amendments and statutes inside the Congressional compound.
Seawell has advice for her fellow students across the state.
“I believe preparing for college is like many things in life,” Seawell said. “We should set goals, work hard and not be afraid to ask others for help.”
