Carter Receives December Staff Award

Published: December 16, 2016

College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) December Staff of the Month award has been given to Megan Carter.

December marks Carter’s two year anniversary at CWI. She worked as a One Stop Specialist in e-campus for a year and a half before transitioning to the Ada County Campus One Stop Student Services location. She is currently co-chair of the Inclusive Excellence Committee and the advisor for the Queers and Allies student club. Prior to joining CWI as an employee she served as a leader in student government, UROC, and Speech and Debate.  

Carter is finishing her associate degree in Liberal Arts. She plans to transfer to Boise State University for a bachelor’s degree in Multidisciplinary Studies.

The nomination notes that Carter demonstrates the core values, leaving a legacy of learning and serving all in an atmosphere of caring. It also states, “I witness the amazing job Megan does every day helping our students. She takes the time to really listen to the student and their concerns. She has a unique gift of making them feel comfortable and they leave with all of their questions answered. She never just gives them a flyer and sends them on their way. She wants them to be successful and better themselves through education. Not only is she amazing with the students, she is truly a team player. She is always willing to step up and help when needed. Ada County One Stop has many new team members lately and she is an amazing teacher and mentor. She doesn’t just give them the answer but shows them where they can find them. She is very patience and kind to everyone."

Carter lives in Boise with her partner and two year old daughter. She is highly involved with local human rights activism.

Please join in congratulating Megan. Thank you for providing such incredible, dedicated support for CWI’s students.
