Hannah’s parents, Dennis & Jeanette Dashiell, wanted to honor her with a scholarship because, “Hannah was a driven student who loved academic accomplishment. She wore her “I Heart Algebra” t-shirt proudly. She looked forward to the adventure of college. Medical education is lengthy and expensive. We want to help other young women to go on with that adventure, and we hope that the recipients of this scholarship will pay it forward after they receive their education.”
An exceptional young woman, Hannah Dashiell was a senior at Squalicum High School. She had a weighted GPA well over 4.0; she was her ASB class Vice President; she had enough AP credits to enter college as a Junior; and she had just been accepted into the Urban Honors Program at Portland State University. Hannah planned to be a doctor. She was very driven, very smart and very responsible. She was sure to accomplish her goal to be a doctor.
In one of her most defining character qualities, Hannah was well known for her consistent kindness and thoughtfulness. She was very inclusive; always offering a smile, a conversation, and showing that she cared. Hannah noticed when people were feeling left out. Hannah remembered birthdays and enjoyed finding the perfect gift. She loved her family, her boyfriend, her quirky car and a good cup of tea. No one could have asked for a better daughter, sister and friend.
