As a junior, Meghan won the Shah award for her outstanding academic work. In addition to compiling a stellar record in and out of the classroom, Meghan was known both for her thoughtful and insightful participation in the classroom and the positive energy and enthusiasm she brought to all of her endeavors.
Meghan’s contributions include her work as Vice President of the School’s Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) student chapter and her participation in THON. In addition, she worked as a graduate research assistant and as a teaching assistant for LER 100. She wrote her senior honors thesis, under the supervision of Dr. Damaske, on men working in childcare centers, as she was interested to see what challenges and benefits men faced in a female dominated field. Meghan collected her own data and was commended by her Thesis Committee for her thoughtful and insightful final product.
