Alumni Feature: Meghan Johnson, Class of 2000

Meghan’s Story:

“I have been married to my husband, Dylan, for 8 years. We live in the Chicago suburbs with our 3 1/2-year-old daughter, Maisie, and Pomeranian, Coco. I am a Client Development Program Manager for a global sustainable design and engineering consultancy. Outside of work, we keep busy with Maisie’s activities, love traveling, and support our sports teams. I didn’t think I could live any closer to our parish as I did to SSM growing up but our current parish is just one block from our home!

My class was the last “one class” classroom to graduate (everyone in grades below us had multiple classrooms) and we had such fun, and special bonds amongst the class and with all of our teachers. While I loved all of my teachers and classes, one in particular (Mr. K!) formed my love for literature so much that I ended up choosing to double major at The University of Kansas just so that I could also get a BA in English Literature. Our daughter carries on my love for literature and it makes me so happy!”

Are you a graduate of St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic School? We’d love to hear from you! We are celebrating our school’s 30th anniversary this year and would like to feature alumni stories throughout the year to share with our current families. We would love to get at least one graduate from each of the last 30 years. If you are willing to be featured please fill out this Google Form.
