UNA-NCA Welcomes New Global Education Staff

UNA-NCA wishes the best to Global Education Director Megan Penn, and welcomes Nicole Bohannan as Global Education Managing Director

After 2 years and a half, our Global Education Director Megan Penn, will be moving on to pursue an intense certificate program at the New York Code and Design Academy (DC campus). Megan's last day in the office will be August 24.

During her time at UNA-NCA, Megan has significantly strengthened our signature education program Global Classrooms DC (GCDC) which, during her leadership, expanded and diversified bringing new audiences, partners and improved program offerings. We are very grateful for her contributions.

"I have continued to be enthusiastic and impressed by the youth that come through GCDC, and their ability to respectfully discuss important and complex issues. It makes me excited for the future! …  It is wonderful to have been part of a community that is interested and willing to advance global education, international understanding and inclusion, and encourage youth leadership.” - Megan Penn   

We are pleased to announce that Nicole Bohannon will be joining the UNA-NCA staff as its Global Education Managing Director effective August 25. Nicole brings extensive Model UN and advocacy experience. She previously served as GCDC Program Manager, where she worked to organize the program's Model UN Conferences, to develop new and engaging curriculum for the year-round program, and to make Global Classroom DC more sustainable and dynamic. Nicole also served as the GCDC Program Coordinator.

We wish Megan much luck in her studies and welcome Nicole in her new role!
