Monday will be Hannah Huston Day in Nebraska.
Governor Pete Ricketts signed a proclamation honoring the Lincoln Public Schools teacher who is a contestant on NBC-TVs “The Voice.”
“She’s been a great ambassador and shows what hard work, talent, and determination can do to get through the round of The Voice where she’s gotten so far,” Ricketts told family and friends gathered for the proclamation signing.
In a video message, Huston, expressed her appreciation for all the support she’s received so far.
“A huge thank you to my family and my friends who have impacted my life. Thank you, Governor Ricketts, for this incredible honor. I never thought I’d have a day named after me… awesome,” Huston said.
Her mother, Candy Huston, says the experience has been indescribable, but a dream come true for her daughter.
“She’s just living out what she loves to do and it’s her passion,” Candy Huston says. “It’s very fulfilling for us. It’s just a joy.”
“I can’t wait to be home to see all of you and thank you in person,” Huston said in her video message.
Huston was born and raised in Nebraska.
She performs again Monday night on The Voice.
