-A A +A
By Deb Hurley Brobst

Hannah Gurrieri, an eighth-grader at Evergreen Middle School, understands a little bit about freedom.

Hannah, 14, wrote an essay about what freedom means to her and how having freedom means protecting the freedoms of others. Her essay was selected as the school’s Freedom Week essay winner by the Platte Canyon Sertoma Club.

She wrote specifically about the freedom to voice her opinion and the freedom to believe in any religion or no religion at all.

“I was surprised,” Hannah said about winning. “I didn’t think I would win.”
