Meet Graduate Megan Cruz Mendiola

Megan Cruz Mendiola is from the beautiful island of Tinian in the Northern Mariana Islands, a U.S. territory just north of Guam. As a child, Megan had dreams of going to college. Not only was she excited for the college journey, she also became the first college student in her family.

Megan attended a Kansas community college, where she graduated with honors and earned an associate degree in psychology. She then transitioned to Washburn University where she became a full-time distance learning student. In 2018, she earned a Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Technology Administration with a minor in Communication Studies. She was a regular on both the Dean's List and President's List.

Today, Megan works in her hometown for the Mayor's Office, assigned to the Tinian Health Center where she assists with administration and medical billing.

"College is a lifelong investment and I am forever grateful to have chosen this path as it greatly benefits my life personally and professionally. I knew I would return to my island one day and give back to my community. I could not have been any happier to apply the knowledge and skills I learned throughout college and share it with my peers. Proud Ichabod Alumna!"

- Megan Cruz Mendiola, BAS '18
