2015 Miss University of Georgia Outstanding Teen
Meredith Ellis (Meri Ellis) Hunt is the 16-year-old daughter of Drs. Robert and Linda Hunt of Acworth. She is a junior at Mt. Paran Christian School.
Her high school accomplishments include membership in the Beta Club and National Honor Society, and she serves as a peer mentor for freshman girls. She has lettered in cross country soccer and cheerleading and has been dancing since the age of three. She plays the violin and is a member of her high school’s honors orchestra. She has also played in the Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra. When not in school, she serves as a “baseball buddy” for special needs children and volunteers in her church nursery.
“I have a passion for volunteering and I love to travel and experience different cultures,” she said. “I realized by spending a week in Guatemala at an orphanage that each person can make a difference in the world – no act is too small.”
The Hunt family has a strong affiliation with UGA. Her mother, Linda, earned her bachelor’s and doctor of pharmacy degrees from UGA, her sister Amelia is a current sophomore and her sister Elizabeth will enter UGA in the fall of 2015.
Meri Ellis will compete in the 2015 Miss Georgia Outstanding Teen competition in Columbus in June.
