Leo Hanna Moore, 17-year-old female, was named Leo of the Year by Lions Clubs International for the association’s 2011-12 fiscal year. Hanna was recognized for her accomplishments on Jan 19 at the Roy W. Caywood Sr. Leadership Conference in Louisville.
Since Hanna became a member in 2008 of the North Hardin/Meade County Leo Club, she has worked on a variety of projects in the local community, such as Bagging for Glasses at Kroger, planting 100 trees at Meade-Olin Park to replace trees destroyed by a tornado and a fundraiser to assist a visually impaired classmate at MCHS.
According to Bill Albano, Leo advisor of North Hardin Lions Club, “Leo Hanna has demonstrated outstanding leadership skills, high ethical standards and personal integrity. She has spearheaded a visit to the Ronald McDonald House in Louisville, Leo members cleaned the common areas and made cookies and brownies for the family members returning from spending time with their child in the hospital. She was also instrumental in planning a fundraiser to assist the Meade County Lions to help provide eye exams and glasses to those less fortunate.”
Hanna and her fellow club members are helping the community through providing vision screenings during the MCHS Health Fair and service projects at Ky. Lions Camp Crescendo, which provides camps for visually impaired children, foster children and children affected by AIDS located near Lebanon Junction.
