Megan Clere

District Administrative Secretary

Megan is from Ashland, KY - right down the AA Highway! She graduated from Northern Kentucky University with a B.S. in Environmental Sciences and a minor in Biology. She has experience in protecting water resources, recycling, wasted food, and more! Ask her how many fish she used for her Twelvemile Creek Bioassessment project (it's a lot). She is notorious for picking out recyclables straight from the trash can and petting every dog she sees.
