Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB: Megan is an effective community builder because she doesn’t wait for permission or invitation to start doing good work – she just goes out there and DOES IT! Nike could take a page out of her book – JUST DO IT! When COVID disrupted school and athletics for children in Lincoln County, Megan and her husband Colin used their business, Cohen and Park Photography, to bring some normalcy and fun to the school year by providing a safe school portrait and athletic photography program. They have always been philanthropic – every child in Lincoln County School District is provided with a school portrait package regardless of ability to pay – but they took it to the next level. Additionally, Megan has worked every single session of our county’s largest COVID vaccine clinic. She is endlessly energetic, optimistic and collaborative.
