Megan graduated from Mount Saint Vincent University with a degree in Public Relations and Certificate in Marketing. In her fourth year of Public Relations, Megan was the President of the Public Relations Society. While at university, she worked for two marketing agencies, S&MG Marketing Group and News Canada Marketing on accounts such as Pepsi Cola Canada and Kodak. In the final year of her Public Relations Degree, Megan became the Atlantic Canadian University Student Recruiter for News Canada Marketing. Upon graduation, Megan accepted full time employment in the field of public relations which led her to work on accounts focused on children. This work led her to return to university to obtain an education degree from the University of Maine. Megan enjoyed teaching Core-French at Bedford Academy for ten years while studying part time towards a Masters of Education Degree. Megan’s studies led her to research the necessity for and success behind the Junior High Goal Setting Program at Bedford Academy. She graduated from Saint Francis Xavier University with a Masters of Education Degree in Administration and Leadership.
Megan created, implemented and taught the Bedford Academy Character Education Program for Grades Three to Six. In celebration of Director Wallace’s twenty-fifth anniversary in private education, Megan co-founded with her mother, Nancy, the “Principal Girls Club” and “Principal Guys Club;” the Bedford Academy Foundation. The mandate of the Foundation was to support charities, such as The Bryan Adams Foundation which received over $10,000.00 dollars to benefit Impact India, which promotes the education of unschooled girls in rural India. Megan and Nancy were guests of Bryan Adams in New York City, where they met with him to discuss how Bedford Academy could continue to play a role in educating girls in rural India.
The Bedford Academy Foundation continued to raise money for other charities and this past year, contributed over $19,000.00 to the IWK Hospital’s, Olivia’s Campaign. Olivia is a junior high student at Bedford Academy. On behalf of Bedford Academy, Olivia received the Big Fish Award for the school, as Bedford Academy raised the most funds for the IWK in Atlantic Canada.
This year, Megan has transitioned into full time Administration in her role as Associate Director at Bedford Academy.
Megan looks forward to working with her mother, friend and mentor, Nancy Wallace, whose journey twenty seven years ago led them to this amazing environment at Bedford Academy.
