Meet HANNAH ANDERSON
What made you decide to live in Evansville and how many years have you lived here?
I grew up in Evansville, moved to Madison for school, and moved back here with my fiancé in April of 2021!
What made you decide to serve as a board member for the Evansville Fund?
I am grateful to Evansville for a lot of things, and I was looking for ways to give back to the community when I moved back. The Evansville Fund gives me the privilege of doing that!
What is your favorite part about being on the Evansville Fund Board and how many years have you been serving on the Board?
My favorite part of being on the board is being able to assist in giving some really great and cool things back to our community. Making new connections with people in Evansville is also something I love. Two things that I can do on the Board! I just joined the board in January of 2022.
What three words would your friends use to describe you?
Loyal. Kind-hearted. Funny.
What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
Most likely reading a book or working on random household projects! I also don’t shy away from a trip to a local winery.
What is one of your favorite quotes?
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live” – Albus Dumbledore
What’s your favorite sport to watch and which team do you root for?
If I had to choose… football. The Packers. In reality, I love all things Wisconsin sports.
What is your favorite way to unwind after a busy day?
Curled up on the couch with comfy clothes and a good book.
