Megan Degenfelder Club Alumni Spotlight

“I am so grateful for my experience as a youth at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming. Not only did I learn leadership and sportsmanship, but I developed relationships with others that have lasted into adulthood. That is why I am so passionate about ensuring opportunities for youth through the Boys & Girls Clubs. Through the Club, we can continue to better prepare students for a successful future in Wyoming.”

–Megan Degenfelder

Republican Candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

For Megan Degenfelder, candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction for the State of Wyoming, summer evenings as a child were spent at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming’s Main Club, playing in summer basketball leagues. Here, she gained confidence and leadership skills through competition.

Megan went on to become a standout athlete in middle school, at Natrona County High School and at the University of Wyoming as captain of the Women’s Rugby Club.

In 2015, when Megan was manager of Public Affairs for Cloud Peak Energy, she was instrumental in developing the first sponsorships for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming’s Young AmeriTowne:WyoTowne, which is a financial literacy center that instructs students throughout the state.

In 2017, Megan was hired as the Department of Education’s Chief Policy Officer. In this role, she oversaw multiple divisions, including education standards, assessment, and the Hathaway scholarship.  She remained an incredible advocate for Boys & Girls Clubs across Wyoming.

 

In the spring of 2022, Megan asked to announce her candidacy for Wyoming Superintendent of Public Instruction at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming’s Young AmeriTowne:WyoTowne—a place that symbolized connection and leadership in her youth and where she contributed during her career in the private and public sector and gave back to the Club.

 

Club alumni Megan Degenfelder inspires young people that they can accomplish anything, including winning a primary election and running as the next Superintendent of Public Instruction for the State of Wyoming.

 

Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming aims to enable and inspire all young people to realize they can reach their full potential as caring and productive citizens.

 

The Club is proud of Megan!
