Hannah Ferguson, our 2019 scholarship winner, delighted us with a performance of her favorite songs, including her own composition, “Practicing Quiet,” and a soulful rendition of “Wild Horses.”
Hannah is a graduate of Morris Hills High, where she was involved with the school honor choir and honor orchestra serving as principal soprano and principal cellist in each respectively. Additionally, she was involved in theater through her high school career, boasting roles such as Tzeitel in ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ and Philia in ‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.’ She served as the Tri-M music honor society president and received the MPAC vocal student of the month award.
Besides music, Hannah was captain of the varsity volleyball team, Vice President of NHS, and an active German club member. Outside of school Hannah was principal cellist of the Lakeland Youth Symphony Orchestra, and was a member of the Area and Region choirs.
One of her proudest achievements was writing, recording, and producing her own original album entitled ‘Control K’ which can now be found on Spotify, ITunes, YouTube etc. Additionally, she serves as a student leader and plays in the worship band at her church.
