Miss Idaho International 2008 is Lisa Hamman. Lisa’s inspiring and ambitious nature often becomes contagious to those around her. She excelled in her studies in High School while finding enjoyment in activities like cheer leading, softball, and ski team. Her senior year she was a member of her class’ graduation committee, started her first job, and maintained highest honors with a 3.82 GPA.
Currently, Lisa is in her junior year at Boise State University where she is a full-time student studying mass communications with a minor in marketing. As her college years come closer and closer to an end, life has begun opening doors with endless possibilities. Lisa is very grateful to have been accepted into the Channel 6 News Internship Program. This is the first of many stepping stones in her ambition to become a national broadcast journalist. Her sophomore year Lisa was accepted into the dean’s honor roll for her ongoing dedication and intellect. For the past three years, she has been continuing her education all the while supporting herself by working full-time at Banner Bank as a personal banker.
In her spare time, Lisa works with Susan G Komen For the Cure and the American Cancer Society on her quest to support Woman's Cancer Awareness. She first became involved with these organizations when cancer hit too close to home. Watching friends and family members battle cancer, and then being touched by it herself gave Lisa the inspiration to help woman fight cancer. She also knows how important personal time is, so when not volunteering, Lisa makes sure that she finds time to play softball, scrapbook and spend time with her family and friends.
