Lindale High School Senior Hannah Brown has been named the recipient of the R.J. Collins State Farm Insurance “Good Neighbor Award.” Brown was surprised with the award presentation Thursday morning.

She received a framed certificate, a gift card to Doc’s Pizza in Lindale and a travel safety kit from Collins. The R.J. Collins State Farm Insurance Good Neighbor Award is presented once a month during the school year to a student who represents the core values of Lindale High School: accountability, commitment, discipline, honesty, integrity, ownership, respect and responsibility. Students are nominated for the award by Lindale High School counselors and administrators.

Brown will attend Texas A&M University next fall and major in Forensics and Investigative Sciences.

She plans to pursue a career with the CIA.

As a student at Lindale High School, Brown has been active in basketball, volleyball, Peer Assisted Learning Strategies (PALS), Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Brown said the presentation Thursday (Dec. 20) morning was a shock. When asked what she felt was the most rewarding part of community service, Brown said it was working with smaller school children.

“I appreciate what you get out of it,” she said. “I love working with little kids through PALS. Just seeing their faces, seeing them succeed, it’s such a blessing that you cannot take for granted.”
