BRISTOL - Hannah Thorpe is a senior from Bristol and attends Middlebury Union High School (MUHS). She is the daughter of Robin Huestis, Ronald Viau and Jason Thorpe. Hannah is a second year student enrolled in two programs at the Hannaford Career Center (HCC): Addison Repertory Theatre (ART) - Technical, and Design and Illustration (D&I). Her instructors at HCC are Steve Small, Candace Burkle, and Lisa Rader.
Hannah is a member of the National Technical Honor Society and the National Art Honor Society. Her attention to detail, and valor when faced with large projects, has served her well. Hannah's work as Head Costume Designer for The Middlebury Town Hall Players' production of "Sound of Music," as well as leading the student fund raising campaign for "Peter Pan," are evidence of this.
Ms. Thorpe has also been a solid contributor at MUHS. She has been involved in Varsity Women's Field Hockey and JV Softball (Captain) at her home school. Hannah was recently selected as "Most Improved Player" by her field hockey coach.
Next year, Hannah plans to attend a four-year art school to major in Fashion Merchandising. Her portfolio has been accepted at Mount Ida College and the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM). Hannah is also applying to Marist College, Savannah College of Art & Design, and Southern New Hampshire University.
We congratulate Hannah Thorpe as the Hannaford Career Center Student of the Month for January, 2011, and wish her continued success in her future endeavors.
