Meagan Pistorius

When she started high school, Meagan Pistorius wasn’t sure what she wanted to do after graduation. She knew that she liked science and wanted to help people, but the only place she had been that incorporated both of those was the physical therapy office she had been treated at as a young athlete.

Because of donors to Decatur City Schools Foundation, Meagan’s health science classes have modern equipment and better-trained teachers. Those teachers also helped arrange Meagan’s internship where she shadowed nurses and doctors.

In August, Meagan will begin college, where she plans to continue studying health sciences to become a Nurse Practitioner with a Pediatrics Specialization.

Friends of the Foundation made a difference in Meagan’s life and in the lives of thousands of other students. Generosity had an immediate impact that can be seen through the equipment, tools, and materials given to career tech programs, teacher training, and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in Decatur City Schools.

Meagan is not alone. There are many more students trying to decide what they want to do after graduation. Together we can provide educational opportunities that go above and beyond the standard curriculum and prepare students for college or career.

Make a donation today or give in honor of your family and friends. Your support ensures that students like Meagan graduate ready for college or a career.
