Nominated by Jules Shindel
Hannah Lee Pate is a student and political nerd who was born and raised in Great Falls, Montana. She was raised by her wonderful father, who went to great lengths to make sure that she was well educated and had a great sense of humor about life. She graduated from CMR High School’s class of 2017, and is now an incoming freshman at the University of Montana. During the 2016 election cycle she registered over 1,000 people to vote in Cascade County, all while attending her senior year of high school. She ran for a senate vacancy in her county January that year as well. She was a recipient of the Horatio Alger Scholarship, and last summer worked as a fellow for the Montana Democratic Party. When she’s not busy with politics or the social justice world, she enjoys drinking lattes, watching House of Cards, and playing the violin.
