KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Megan Felt
Program Director, Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes

As Program Director, Megan works with teachers and students all over the world to develop Unsung Heroes projects.

Megan Felt was a student in Norman Conard’s class, and is one of the founders of the Life in a Jar project that began in 1999, which discovered Irena Sendler. Megan was named a National Coca-Cola All-American Scholar for her community service. She was also selected to the 2nd team USA Today All-American Academic Team for 2003. She is a graduate of Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas, with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Management. Megan is currently earning her Masters in Educational Leadership. About the development of the Life in a Jar project Megan says, “During my freshman year in high school, we discovered the story of an amazing woman named Irena Sendler, and our research began. We thought the Irena Sendler Project would end after the National History Day competition, but to our surprise, the project had taken a life of its own. The first time I met Irena, I was amazed by her wisdom and grace. Her courage and love can tear down any barrier. She has challenged us to continue her story and inspire others. This is a tremendous task we will all try to achieve for the rest of our lives.” As Program Director, Megan works with teachers and students all over the world developing projects.
