Hannah Turner Gervais

Hannah is 15 years old. She is one of the most altruistic young persons I have had the pleasure of working with. Hannah volunteers for other organizations including the Kelowna General Hospital and is also an avid outdoor adventurist. She is patient, kind and so far has logged well over 150 hours of volunteer time with Cool Arts. Way to go!
