Bear Facts

Megan Monoson
As a senior in her third year on staff, Megan (spelled the right way) will be taking on the role as Magazine Editor-in-Chief of Bear Facts Student Media. In previous years she was the Cover Editor and a writer for the in-depth section of the magazine now known as Spotlight. When Megan is not working on Bear Facts, she spends her time coaching the Lake Zurich Flames Elite cheerleading team known as Inferno, nannying three adorable little girls, and cheerleading as a member of the varsity team. Although she hasn't yet decided what she will major in, Megan is considering UW-Madison, and seven other universities.
