Meet our newest staff members . . .
March 19, 2015
Megan Emigh is our Volunteer Coordinator and Fund Development Coordinator. Megan is part time (20 hrs a week) and organizes our volunteer needs and all the people and groups who inquire about serving alongside our staff as volunteers. She also helps research grants and connects with groups who could help us meet our budget needs.
Megan graduated last April from GVSU with a degree in Public and Nonprofit Administration, with an emphasis in Community Development, and a minor in Spanish. She volunteered in our food pantry during her junior year at GVSU. “I gained deep respect for The Other Way’s approach to community development . . . We are all, together, working towards improving, loving, and sustaining a community we care about.”
About her spare time, “The epitome of fun for me is having great conversation with people I care about over good food or coffee.” Megan is also in her third year of volunteering with Young Life where she walks alongside students through the highs and lows of high school and absolutely loves it. She is a pretty adventurous eater. “I love trying local restaurants around Grand Rapids – Ethiopian food, Mexican food, and sushi are some of my favorites.”
