Student Leader Spotlight: Megan Mungall '15
Junior leader shares how The Center for Leadership became a home that helped her spread her wings.
Junior Megan Mungall considers Elon’s Center for Leadership her “home away from home.” As a sophomore, Mungall joined the Center for Leadership executive team as their marketing director. “At first, I struggled to find my place at Elon,” she said. “But after I joined the CFL team, I found it.”
When Mungall began her role as marketing director, the CFL was undergoing change. It had recently moved to a larger space on campus to accommodate growth and also re-vamped the LEAD Program, available to all students. “It was so amazing to be a part of all of that,” she said.
Mungall said it was the great people she worked with that made the Center for Leadership such a welcoming and supportive home. “Because of the environment of the Center for Leadership and what it stands for, it attracts a group of hardworking, fun, mature and caring leaders,” she said.
Having applied leadership lessons to all three of her internship experiences, Mungall knows that everything the Center for Leadership fosters has helped her spread her wings at Elon and will push her past the bubble.
“The Center for Leadership is always the first thing I talk about when explaining my qualifications in interviews,” she said. “It gave me the tools to shape myself. I am a more confident, self-aware person and leader, and a more successful student because of the work ethic and skills I learned.”
“Through her involvement in the CFL, Megan has been able to utilize her creativity and innovation to further the presence of our office and reach more Elon students,” said Dana Carnes, associate director of the Center for Leadership.
