WMBD/WYZZ-TV - BRIMFIELD, Ill. - Hannah Wallace knows she's approaching the end of her high school career.
"There'a a totally different feel, especially being a senior," said Wallace. "I can feel the sense of urgency. Got to do it, gotta do it now."
As a post player, she's in the middle of the Lady Indians' offense. She's also in the middle of a lot things at school.
The National Honor Society and student council member takes pride in her work in helping organize events that benefit her classmates. And future students at Brimfield High School.
"Setting up Homecoming and selling things to raise money for that,"' said Wallace. "And raising money for the younger classes that won't have as many student council members. That was fun."
Her goal this month is to take the Lady Indians to the state tournament at Redbird Arena. Her goal for the end of the school year is to be her class valedictorian.
It's a goal the straight A student set as a freshman.
"I'm not naturally smart, I work hard to get my grades," explained Wallace. "The mentality of working hard as possible, that'll take me farther than talent would."
The senior's extra efforts away from the floor have rubbed off on her team on the court, according to her coach
"People play off that," said Lady Indians coach Jim Blane. "They want to achieve and they see it's a result of hard work."
Working hard seems easy for Wallace. The hard part for her is waiting until May to reach that final high school goal.
