Megan is a second-year student at PCC and first-year student ambassador. She is currently working on an Associate of Science degree and plans to transfer to a four-year university to continue her studies in Marine Biology.  She just recently graduated from D70 Online and has been going to PCC since her junior year of high school. During her senior year, she was able to attend PCC full-time. Because of this, PCC’s concurrent enrollment has helped her take early steps in her studies, guiding her to graduate a year early. PCC has helped her become a valedictorian for her high school and become a current member of the National Society of Leadership and Success. 

“Everyone here at PCC is so welcoming and supportive! They’re almost like family. I have had many opportunities open for me ever since I first applied.” Being a student ambassador has also opened a lot of doors in helping her get closer to success. From giving tours, to hosting events, it has been very enjoyable for Megan. She loves helping others succeed and reach their full potential. She loves being positive and strives to be a good shoulder to lean on for people.
