Polly J. Hanst is from Garrett County. All her life, she was active in 4-H programs where she assumed a leadership role as an adult. Polly was known for her rugged athleticism, riding on horseback or walking to many Home Extension 4-H Club and Farm Women’s Club meetings in the winter. Hanst was recognized by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) of Garrett County for her work on women’s issues.

An accomplished wife, mother, and grandmother who has served as president of the PTA, AAUW, & Lutheran Church Women, and an active resource person who is willing to volunteer anywhere she can contribute to the interests of women, Polly J. Hanst is truly a very special lady!
