During high school, Megan was a member of the National Honor Society, for which she volunteered in the community doing numerous activities, such as collecting food for the local humane society, and assisting with the local Red Cross blood drive.  Outside of school Megan was an active 4-H member as well, showing horses, goats, rabbits, and entering cooking and crafts.  For the past four years she was a member of the Cros-Lex Math Academic Team, being team captain the last two years. Megan’s parents’ names are Suzanne Maul and Ronald Maul, and her future step-father’s name is Christopher Cobey.  This fall, Megan plans to attend Oakland University to study pre-medical, with the goal of majoring in biology to continue on to medical school.

The Kent and Lucille Freeland Scholarship Fund was established in 2016, and has been established for Croswell-Lexington High School graduates who have attained a minimum of a C average in their four years of high school and are in need of financial assistance to attend the accredited college, university, or trade school of their choice.  Preference for one scholarship is to go to a graduate planning to major or significantly study physics and one scholarship to a graduate planning to study chemistry.  Mr. Freeland was a long-time dedicated teacher of physics and chemistry at Croswell-Lexington High School.  He attended numerous National Science Foundation Seminars to provide his students with exciting and current science and technology.  He inspired his students with a positive, respectful, and fun-learning environment.
