Hannah Mattson & Clay McLelland

How/where did you meet?

We met our freshman year of college. We were both members of the UAHT Shooting Sports Team. That was something we could bond over and enjoyed shooting competitively against each other.

Are there any special memories of you two on campus

We have so many! We enjoyed spending time with friends at Talley or The Vill. We loved the drive-in movie theatre, homecoming week and the crawfish boil.

What did the two of you do for fun/dates?

Our date nights included eating at The Flying Burger or Antiguas Mexican. We enjoyed riding the back-roads of Magnolia or hang out with friends.

How many years have you been together?

We have been together for 5 years. I left to go to SAU after completing my associates degree and he soon followed. Clay proposed a few days after he graduated from SAU in 2019. We will be getting married this June and are extremely excited for our new beginning.
