While I met Hannah at Cottonwood Gulch, she and I connected more regularly when she became a reporter for KUNM. As a retired elementary teacher, I worked with Hannah to find teaches to interview about the status of education in NM under former PED leader Skandera and Gov. Martinez. As a parent of a developmentally disabled adult daughter, I connected with Hannah often over the various DD issues at our state legislature. I always appreciated her careful listening to the “experts” and her excellent interview skills. For such a young reporter, she had an impressive depth of understanding of so many health and education issues. I loved hearing her on the radio-she was always a reaffirming voice tackling challenging topics that we all need to understand and discuss.
Thank you Hannah, for making a difference.
