Megan is a student at Whitko High School and is in the Engineering program with the Warsaw Area Career Center. Megan says a teacher recommended that she look into taking these classes as she would benefit from them in the future and they sounded fun. When she's not busy at school, Megan can be found at FCCLA events or playing soccer. She's proud to have outstanding attendance and to have been awarded the DAR award. Upon graduation, Megan plans to attend college to become a special education teacher. 

Congrats Megan & thanks for allowing us to feature you on the blog today!
