Mallory Hanson

Mallory Hanson is a freshman from LeClaire, Iowa. She plans on majoring in History with a minor in Economics. Mallory hopes to pursue a career in Museum Studies and to become a curator. In high school, she was very active in her school’s music program. Mallory participated in band, full orchestra, brass choir, concert choir, and jazz choir. In addition to history and music, Mallory spends most of her free time reading or watching movies with family and friends.

“I wanted to be an Iowa History Center Scholar, because the program will further my understanding of Midwestern history and allow me to share my love of history with others. By participating in the Iowa History Center, I hope to improve my communication and research skills, which will help prepare me for my future career. I am excited to begin my experience as an Iowa History Center Scholar.”
