Meet Megan

Hi, I'm Megan Card, a journalist and junior at the University of South Dakota. While I'm serving my third year as a resident of Vermillion, S.D., I'm an Iowa native who caught the journalism bug working on my high school newspaper, the Pelladium. Since then, I've worked as a part-time reporter for the weekly Pella Chronicle, and I've held two internships with the largest daily papers in North and South Dakota. At USD, I also serve as the editor-in-chief of the independent student newspaper, The Volante.
