Meet Megan Porter

Shortly after moving back to Meridian, Megan Porter joined the Meridian Symphony Association Board of Directors where she has served in a variety of roles over the last several years. Having previously held the position of Vice-President for two seasons, she is currently entering her third term as Board President.

Megan's appreciation and interest in symphonic music can be attributed to her father. "As a child, my parents made sure my brothers and I had a good foundation in music and were involved in music lessons from an early age. For several years, I played viola in Meridian's community orchestra. The fact that I had the opportunity to play the same viola my dad played through high school and college made it even more special. Although music is not a career path I ultimately pursued, I'm grateful for the opportunity to be surrounded by orchestral music and to work with an organization that plays a major role in bringing classical music to our community."  

Porter earned her Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and Cognitive Studies from Millsaps College and a joint Master in Public Health (MPH) and a Master in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). She currently works in the healthcare sector in program management.
