WCHS Academic Spotlight


Hannah Crawford has built a reputation around White County High School as being someone filled with determination and driven by a desire to help others - great qualities for someone who aspires to be a physician assistant someday.

“Hannah is an amazing young woman with integrity, determination, and drive.  She is always striving for her best and has a work ethic that is unmatched.  She is always there to help out or assist in any way possible.  She goes above and beyond in her academic career, athletic endeavors, and her FFA journey,” White County faculty member Kim Eller said about Crawford. “Hannah will be successful in whichever endeavor she chooses, due to her leadership qualities and other attributes.”

Crawford, who has plans to attend Tennessee Tech University and major in biology with a concentration in health science, has used her strong work ethic, attention to detail, and communication skills to provide herself with plenty of opportunities to work on her leadership skills as well as find ways to be of service to others both at school and throughout the community.

Crawford has been a member of the White County Youth Fair Board since 2021, has worked concessions stands at youth football games, and has been involved in numerous Future Farmers of America (FFA) projects and events. She has served as the captain of the WCHS Warriorettes’ softball team, has been a student advisor for FFA, the treasurer for White County’s HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America) organization, and is a member of the school’s BETA Club which is reserved for those with a high academic standing.

In an effort to get a head start on learning all she can about her future career, Crawford has participated in clinical internships. She has participated in a job shadowing program with the school nurse at Woodland Park Elementary School and also with a physician assistant at Cumberland Family Care, PC.

Crawford said she looks to her faith to provide inspiration and guidance when things get difficult or overwhelming – as they sometimes do for students who strive for greatness in all aspects of their lives.

“Philippians 4:13, ‘I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me’ is something I turn to,” she said. “I use it as a reminder that when life gets hard, I can always turn to the Lord and trust in Him.”
