Outstanding Partner in Education

Megan Chang Named Outstanding Partner in Education

Visalia Unified School District and Visalia Partners in Education recognize Megan Chang (TETER Associate / Professional Engineer) for her dedication and support of their Linked Learning Academies and Career Technical Education programs:

Megan Chang has been an active advisory board member for the Architecture and Engineering Academy at Redwood High School and currently serves as its chairperson. Her ongoing support for the academy goes beyond attending meetings as evident in her involvement and interactions with students both inside and outside of the classroom. This past February, Megan helped coordinate various activities for Engineering Week at Redwood which included guest presentations and lunch with professionals from TETER and an essay writing competition for young women interested in the field of Engineering. I wish more industry partners were committed to our students and made the high level of contributions like her, which allows our students opportunities to explore and expand their interest in a career field of choice. The Architecture and Engineering Academy would like to thank Megan for serving as an inspiration for many of our students, especially the three girls in our program who now have a role model to follow.

Megan, who was unable to attend the event, expressed her appreciation:

I am honored to receive this recognition. I’m also honored to work alongside the great Redwood High School faculty and other design professionals to help these bright Academy students achieve their dreams in Architecture and Engineering.  Volunteering with the Academy for the past five years always brings a smile to my face. I love watching the kids smile, and get excited and amazed at what they can achieve with the knowledge they’ve learned.  I’m looking forward to many more smiles in the years to come!”

TETER Partner, Robert Thornton, accepted the recognition on Megan’s behalf.
