Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB:
Megan’s job is part time, but she gives it her all. She organizes and often supervises or teaches many of her classes and after school activities. Every summer she organizes swim lessons for Wheeler County youth by setting up the time frame and the transportation to Condon for 2 weeks of swim lessons. She takes kids to ” pumpkin patch” activities annually, often over 100 miles distant from our extremely rural area. She coaches a cheer club involving all three schools in Wheeler County and has started a choir group. She supervises crafts and Legos and robotics, after school activities at Spray school. Home schooled children are welcome in all the programs. There are so many more activities, including an annual back to school community BBQ, summer camps, and workshops. She is an incredible community member that is very humble and does not receive a lot of attention and a very small salary for her work.
