She’s making someone’s life a little better. Megan Rogers, a sophomore business major at Niagara University, has been named a 2016 Newman Civic Fellow for demonstrating outstanding leadership and civic engagement. Megan is among 218 students in the country to receive the award.

“Working on the Sandal Falls project has been an amazing experience,” Rogers said. “Knowing that we can impact even one person’s life with a simple pair of shoes makes all the time and effort put in worth it. It is a blessing to have this opportunity to volunteer in making a difference and give someone a new chance at a better, healthier life.”
