Announcing The Hilliard Institute’s Newest Intern


Nashville area native Hannah Chaney has been selected as a writing intern for The Hilliard Institute. In conjunction with this position, she’ll be receiving a scholarship from the Starfish Society, a charitable division of the educational nonprofit.

Hannah loves music, fashion, working with children, and being outdoors in warm-sunny weather. She loves to write and hopes to encourage and inspire others through this expression and maybe write her own book someday.

Feeling called to study ministry, Hannah is excited to see where the Lord leads her in the next chapter of life as she prepares to attend ministry school this fall.

The Hilliard Institute is grateful for the work she’ll be doing in updating website content, writing articles, researching for and working with Hilliard Press, and helping with events.
