Megan Marshall was born and raised in the Chicago metropolitan area. Marshall enlisted in the United States Marine Corps at the age of 17 and is currently serving on active duty with 20 years of honorable service to our country.

While serving on active duty Megan and her husband Marcus have raised five children together. Megan has contributed to many communities throughout the world, volunteering her time as a mentor to youth and young adults, coaching youth sports, and being of support to many new military families.

“I stepped forward to run for LSR7 school board because I viewed the opportunity as an extension of my service to my country as a United States Marine, and an opportunity to pay forward the tremendous support I received from Lee’s Summit teachers who looked out for my kids during my last deployment.”

Marshall holds a Bachelors of Arts in Business Management and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration. She holds the rank of Chief Warrant Officer in the U.S. Marine Corps, a rank held by less than one percent of all Marines currently serving. Marshall has oversaw Department of Defense budgets in excess of $300 million dollars.

Some of Marshall’s plans upon being elected to LSR7 school board include expanding professional licensing and certifications for high school students in the fields of healthcare, advanced manufacturing, information technology, construction, and transportation. Marshall also will push to slash the number of overall hours teachers spend in professional development that doesn’t translate to higher student performance while working to implement professional development for all teaching staff that focuses on best practices for trauma-informed care for students.

“Families want options for their children and teachers want the type of development that pays direct dividends in the classroom. Our students should have first dibs at the future jobs coming to Lee’s Summit, and every child in our district deserves to be seen no matter what level of trauma they carry to school each day. In my opinion, this is the highest form of student equity.”
