Last week a new intern, Hannah Knight, officially joined our staff team. She’s going to be a full time student ministry intern from now through next April. Hannah has attended WSCC for a while now and is looking at pursuing a career in ministry so we invited her to join our team. Drew will be transitioning away on May 31st to lead a ministry of his own so we’re especially excited to have Hannah jumping in now. Many of you already know Hannah and can share our excitement to have her on our team. If you haven’t had a chance to meet her yet, we asked her to share a bit about herself below:
1. What were you doing before coming to work at WSCC?

I won the 2013 American Red Cross Workplace Hero Award, I take kickboxing classes, and I am really interested in Human Trafficking and Rapha House.
