Rapid growth brings a Montanan home as Megan Jung joins as Program Director for Montana Code Girls to lead the growth and expansion of Big Sky Code Academy’s youth initiatives.
A native Montanan from Billings, Megan graduated from St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota where the university’s mission to educate women to lead and influence helped shape her interests and professional passions. Her career took her to Bozeman and then Oregon where she completed her Master’s degree at Oregon State University and subsequently worked at University of Portland.
“I was looking for an opportunity to come home to Montana and serve my community again” said Megan. “I’m excited to join the Big Sky Code Academy team to help lead and empower Montana’s next generation of young women to pursue their interests and passions in technology and coding.”
“I am proud that the explosive growth of our Montana Code Girls program, with over 100 registered students, has created an opportunity for one of Montana’s own to come home” said Devin B. Holmes, America Campaign and Big Sky Code Academy founder. “I look forward to working with Megan as she brings her experience and leadership to the team to define the future of our youth initiatives. As we train the current and future workforce of Montana’s technology sector, we are working hard to create more jobs that will bring Montanan’s back home.”
