Bio: Hannah Zuraff is a senior who will graduate in May with degrees in psychology and sociology (inequality and social justice emphasis), as well as certificates in three minors: women and gender studies, international development studies and nonprofit administration. While at UM, Hannah has actively volunteered with local nonprofits, which includes serving as vice president on the Boys and Girls Club of Missoula County board of directors. Hannah is a member of Alpha Phi and served as the sorority’s community service chair and chair of the chapter’s Red Dress Gala philanthropy event, which last year raised more than $13,000 to support women’s heart health research. She also founded the Grizzly Service Club, which provides UM students with service opportunities across Missoula.
Thank you: “I would like to thank the Missoula nonprofit sector, my sisters in Alpha Phi and my family for introducing me to the importance of volunteerism and service. Without these positive influences, I would not be the service-driven person I am today. I have extreme gratitude for being selected for this award and have loved being able to represent the University of Montana as a student volunteer.”
