IVC student veteran Hannah Uribe was recently recognized as a Veteran of the Year for Assembly District 74, a recognition given by Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris. Uribe says the nomination, made by IVC’s Senior Veterans Specialist Ezekiel (Zeke) Hall, took her by surprise.
“It feels unreal. I do not feel deserving, but I am deeply honored and grateful to be considered,” says Uribe.
Uribe says her three years in the Navy serving as a Fire Controlman and working with the ship's self-defense system instilled a greater sense of confidence and self-assurance in her.
