Alumni Spotlight- Megan Spencer

Alumni Update from Meagan Spencer who is a graduate from 2015:

“My name is Meagan Spencer (formerly McLain). I graduated HU undergrad in 2013 and grad in 2015, and a lot has changed since then.

As Emerson puts it, “The only person that you are destined to become is the person you decide to be”

After graduation, I moved back home to Dickson, TN, and was legally adopted by the Spencer family (yes, at age 24, which is an awesome Godsend to have a fresh start at life!) who took me in at 18 while I had nowhere to go during breaks from college & eventually integrated me into their family.

I am super grateful for the choices & opportunities that I have had since graduation. I have worked in a rural school district with 3-21 yr olds in an alternative school, Headstart, life skills, and other settings and have loved the diversity of it! I have also had the opportunity to teach Anatomy & Physiology for pre-nursing and Personal Health for education majors at Freed-Hardeman.

Currently, I am pursuing some passions woven into our healthcare & education world, too, including advocating for rural education & healthcare by participating in my county leadership program & my state association, university research & development, & finishing up my Ed.D in Organizational Leadership in Higher Education at Abilene Christian with a research focus on developing & assessing rural healthcare partnerships with university programs to create sustainable rural healthcare and educational outcomes.

I encourage you to make many decisions to take opportunities in your career as God opens doors. Go pursue passions within your career, go learn new skills, and go make a difference!”

Thank you for sharing, Megan!
