“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.”
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.
