Hannah Polk’s father, Jimmy Polk, has been a Texas public school music educator since 1997. His love of music has been contagious to all who knew him and to the thousands of students he impacted over his career.
In 2018 he was diagnosed with a very rare, very deadly brain disorder. His condition forced him to leave the career he loved at the age of 47. To carry on his legacy, Hannah’s family established a scholarship fund to bless students in the two school districts (Kaufman ISD and Kemp ISD) where he served.
Proceeds from her Bonfire campaign went directly to this fund. She sold 443 shirts and raised over $4,000 for the scholarship fund.
