Giving Back Through Knowledge and Time
In this era of meal kits and fast food, most people don’t spend time preparing elaborate dinners for friends and family.
But for HSS Board Member Megan Selck, the thoughtful act of providing good food for loved ones is just one way she gives her time and talents for the benefit of others.
Professionally, Megan has dedicated her entire career to the nonprofit sector. For two decades, she has supported the mission and development of such organizations as the Greater St. Louis Area Boy Scouts of America, Loaves and Fishes Community Services, CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, and The American Cancer Society.
Through these positions, Megan has learned the ins and outs of the nonprofit world. She sees firsthand what can be achieved through the dedication of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
At home in her community, Megan is active in her church, St. Paul United Church of Christ in Waterloo, where she also serves as chair of Child’s World Preschool Board of Directors.
She is a member of the Alpha Phi House Corporation Board and chairperson of the Monroe County Chapter of the American Red Cross. She also serves on the board and development committee at the Alliance Francaise de St. Louis.
Then a few years ago, HSS leadership approached Megan about lending her expertise to guide the development of Human Support Services.
Megan quickly saw how essential HSS is to the community and agreed to join the Board of Directors.
“HSS serves a need in our community that is only growing,” Selck said. “Mental health is critical at every level, and I am honored to work with the team at HSS to make it a priority for Monroe County.”
Along with her work on the board, Megan and her husband Andrew, donate a crawfish boil – prepared and hosted by the Selcks at their home – for our annual Shine Your Light Gala.
Megan, a native of Belleville, settled in Waterloo in 2016. She and her husband Andrew have two children and two dogs. Megan enjoys attending her children’s activities, playing tennis, and traveling.
We are honored to have board members like Megan as part of our HSS family. If you are interested in learning more about serving on the HSS board or on one of our committees, please email Courtney Hunter, Development Director, at email@example.com.
