Born and raised in Maryland, Megan Lemon enjoys Charlotte and the southern charm it provides.The support and opportunities she felt the Levine Scholars Program and UNC Charlotte offered solidified her decision to head to south after high school. "One of my favorite aspects of being a 49er is the opportunity to create new traditions and help build student organizations and other programs."
An active 49er, Megan holds leadership positions in several student organizations including: Charlotte Dance Marathon, the Community Garden, Tan Kap Vini, and the Pre-Law Society. After interning with the Make-A-Wish Foundation the summer after her freshman year, Megan continued volunteering as a Wish Granter.
Megan is majoring in international studies with a focus on development and sustainability with minors in public health, women’s and gender studies, and economics. Passionate about seeing the world, she spent semesters studying abroad in Spain and Costa Rica and a summer in India.
