SU Alumna Earns Columbia University Teachers College Scholarship
SALISBURY, MD---When Megan Mahedy of Wall Township, NJ, begins her graduate studies at Columbia University this fall, she will do so with the backing of a Salisbury University education.
Mahedy, who earned full funding for her first graduate semester as a recipient of the Columbia University Teachers College Scholarship Award, recently completed her B.A. in community health in three years at SU. Graduating from Salisbury with magna cum laude honors, she will pursue her M.S. in the same field.
“I am so excited to use the unparalleled skills and knowledge I gained while a student at Salisbury and expand upon those during my time at Columbia,” she said.
While at SU, Mahedy was a member of the national Phi Kappa Phi, Omicron Delta Kappa leadership and Phi Eta Sigma freshman honor societies. She was a resident assistant for the University’s Biology Living Learning Community; wrote the health column for The Flyer student newspaper; and worked as a special projects developer for MAC, Inc., the Maryland Area Agency on Aging, through the SU-based ShoreCorps/PALS (Partnership for Adolescents on the Lower Shore) AmeriCorps program.
She also has served as a research assistant in the University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s doctoral program in organizational leadership and a scholar in Columbia’s Epidemiology and Population Health Institute.
