Meet Our Members- Megan

This is Megan. She is 18 years old. She is a freshman at the UofL PACT program. She loves all of her friends and DSL and has grown tremendously through all of the great programs she has participated in. Boogie Down Crew, Book Club, Steps to Independence class, Pre Employment training and Audition Boot camp ( which helped to land her a role in Mercy’s play Godspell). She comes to every social activity that she can and has always loved the girls lock in and the parties at the barn. Megan has made so many meaningful friendships in her many years going to DSL and is forever grateful for this incredible place she feels so comfortable and loved in!
