Staff Spotlight: Hannah Knight
1. Who are you, what do you do at PH, and where are you from?
My name is Hannah Knight. I am the Director of Therapeutic Services at Project Horizon. I am from Midlothian, Texas.
2. What led you to Lexington and the work you do now?
I came to Lexington for my final internship in 2017 for grad school, working on my MSW. I planned to only stay 9 months... we see how that worked out! I have always enjoyed working with people and helping them to utilize what they have to succeed. It is a privilege to hold the stories that we get to with our clients.
3. What’s the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is seeing children feel heard. Sometimes I get to see that “ah-ha” moment. Watching a kiddo celebrate progress and healing is a beautiful thing!
4. What’s something most people don’t know about you?
Most people don’t know that I am passionate about dancing. When I hear music, I have a hard time staying still!
Deck the Halls is Back!
Deck the Halls is back on December 11 at 5:30 PM.
Held every year in early December, this event provides an elegant dinner with live music and dancing and a silent auction.
The real entertainment, however is our live auction. Generous donations from local business and community members make Deck the Halls a wonderful evening. We are excited to share that one of our auction pieces this year is a Whimsical Hobbit House (more info below).
Deck the Halls is sold out, but folks can still participate in the silent and live auction by going to www.circlecauction.com and downloading their app. All funds raised are used locally to provide services for domestic and sexual violence.
Project Horizon will follow recommendations from the CDC, VDH, and VMI. Any announced restrictions are subject to change.
The Whimsical Hobbit House
In late October, the Timber Framers Guild of America descended upon Lexington to build a "whimsical house" to auction off at our Deck the Halls this December.
Community members and students from VMI joined in to learn about the timber framing process.
Special thanks to Grig and Cindy Mullen for hosting the Timber Framers this year!
