Meg DeMarco was promoted to the Assistant Director for Student Employment Programs in the Office of Scholarship and Student Aid at UNC-CH. Meg will transition beginning Monday February 22.
Meg said in an email to our department, “I started as a Pre-Award manager with our team in 2017. This was not only my first full-time professional career, but my first-time work for a University. Over the last four years I have had the opportunity to work in many departments across our campus but having Biochem as my home department was a dream come true. Lynn and our admin staff made work feel like a home away from home. The faculty and staff always treated me with respect as I navigated the wide horizon of grants. I truly learned so much during my time spent here and am very grateful with my time spent working with so many of you. I started my journey to obtain my MPH in Leadership from Gillings in 2019. Graduating this May, I am looking forward to my next position in the Office of Student Aid and Scholarships. I hope I can make an impact in our University through financial equity. Part of my role will be overseeing the work study programs for undergraduate students, so I hope to see all of you in passing. Thank you for the well wishes as I start this next chapter.”
“We will continue to work with the School of Medicine Service center for our pre-award specialist. We have been assigned Candace Lubar, her email address is Candace_lubar@med.unc.edu that will be working with Megan to transition beginning February 22, 2021. We anticipate that the movement to a new pre-award employee will be seamless.
