Meagan McLavish: building community

Meagan is one of the most outstanding individuals I know. She is fun, easy to work with, and is a positive role model to all those around her. I make these claims based on personal experience, as I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to be on the same team as her.

One of Meagan’s earlier achievements in her undergraduate career was being apart of the group that envisioned and created the Interdepartmental Science Students’ Society (ISSS). Her input and past leadership experiences helped to make this group what it is today – one of the largest and most far reaching organizations on campus. Meagan also served on the inaugural ISSS team as a Councilor and a Director.

Another one of Meagan’s major accomplishments was her work in the Health and Wellness Team (H&WT) for two years. Starting off as a volunteer on the peer health education team, Meagan is now, currently, a member of the Task Force.

For the past two years, Meagan has also been a Co-Chair for the University of Alberta Canadian Red Cross Club. Through her vision, leadership, and hard work, Meagan has played an instrumental role in transforming the club. She has helped to rework the club’s structure, change the atmosphere and dynamic and, as a result, has helped this club grow.

Overall, Meagan’s achievements have truly helped to shape many organizations and individuals at the University of Alberta. Moreover, her role as a mentor and ability to inspire others has spread her enthusiasm beyond the organizations in which she is directly involved. She is rightfully one of University of Alberta’s top 100 most influential undergraduate students.
