Undergraduate Student Spotlight

Hannah Kent

This past summer, Hannah, a rising senior from Tulane University, volunteered full-time at SLLS to support the organizations fundraising efforts. During her internship, she discovered her passion for both community outreach and fundraising.

Hannah actively participated in weekly strategy sessions and played a crucial role in planning and executing our annual fundraising pub quiz. Thanks to her, SLLS exceeded its fundraising goals that night and had an exceptionally successful evening.

"With the unconditional support of Gwynne Mashon and Laura Tuggle, I had the freedom and guidance to ask questions, propose new ideas, and discover the integrity and pure love inherent in helping underserved Louisiana citizens navigate the justice system." - Hannah
