Meet the Hahns

Both Lisa and Mike have been teachers in the school district. Lisa has taught elementary and special education and also served as an administrator at Fallsvale School. Mike was a well loved history teacher and class advisor at Big Bear High School. They have created the Hahn Family Scholarship as a way of giving back to the students that inspired them and the great education their children received in the Bear Valley Unified School District. 

Lisa and Mike were both first generation college graduates. They want to give students the opportunity to attend college, as their parents did for them. Their children Tiana and Wilson both received Mihaylo Scholarships and they would love to see them carry on the family scholarship.

Lisa and Mike are looking for students who are going to a junior college or who have struggled in school as recipients of their scholarship. Mike and Lisa having a strong belief in education and love for teaching said, “We may move away, but we will always have a tie to this amazing town with this scholarship.”
