Trumbull Community Women, the local non-profit organization whose members provide many hours of volunteer service to our town and surrounding communities, has announced the winner of its annual scholarship. This award is given to a graduating Trumbull resident who has demonstrated extraordinary dedication and leadership in their volunteer efforts within the community.

This year, Hannah Lillicraf, a member of Trumbull High School class of 2014, was the choice of the nominating committee to receive this honor.

Hannah is co-captain of Remember Alzheimer’s National Youth Movement, a chapter of Connecticut’s Alzheimer Association. She has helped raise nearly $40,000 for the Norwalk “Walk to End Alzheimer’s”, as well as volunteering at school as a Link Crew Leader and with the Black Rock Care Ministry helping homebound people in need. It was her early commitment to the Youth Movement — bringing awareness to youth whose relatives have contracted this debilitating disease — first as a participant, then as one of the Movement leaders, that set her apart from other applicants.

Hannah will be attending the University of North Carolina Wilmington in the fall, studying Physical Therapy. Trumbull Community Women wishes Hannah, and all the Trumbull graduates, much success in their future endeavors.
