October 27, 2016


Hansen earns distinction for Class of 2017.

Congratulations to Shattuck-St. Mary’s student Abigail Hansen, who was recently named the Minnesota Distinguished Young Woman for the Class of 2017. Hansen was named Owatonna’s Distinguished Young Woman in March, and spent time with a host family, visited elementary schools around the area, served at area nonprofits, and more as part of the evaluation process.

In addition to the title of Distinguished Young Woman, Hansen also received the Scholastic Award and Spirit Award, voted on by her peers. She will represent Minnesota at the National Distinguished Young Women program in Mobile, Ala., in June.
