“Megan is a polished and professional presenter and her presentation had quite an impact on our school. I will try to give some sense of just how powerful and on target her presentation was.
First the comments. Many students said it was the best presentation we had offered in their four years at Divine Child. Teachers complemented me on bringing in such a polished and effective speaker. My principal said that in his fourteen years of being in Catholic education it was the best he had seen.
Students were particularly impressed by the way Megan presented a logical case for the pro-life position. Many students said it “just made sense to them.” after hearing her speak. Students also liked the fact that she strongly disagreed with the pro-choice position without demonizing those who might hold it. She reminded the students several times that there are real human beings, hurting human beings, on all sides of the issue. Megan even reached some of our most aloof students whose favorite answer is usually the opposite of whatever the Church teaches.
After presenting for two hours straight Megan then took questions from a group of students who stayed behind. The ease with which she answered these students questions, some of which were very difficult, and the deep level of knowledge that she displayed while doing so was very impressive. Some people are good at delivering a presentation, others at responding on the fly. There are very few people who can do both really well. Megan is one of those.
Megan even spent time in some of our classrooms later in the day. This was really an unexpected bonus. It was also very gracious of her after an already long day.
I would tell anyone who is thinking of inviting Megan into their school to do it. Don’t hesitate. Get her on your calendar as soon as you can. It will be one of the best decisions you will make this year. You will get a professional, lively, smart presentation. You will get a presenter who is fluent in logic, philosophy, and science when presenting the case for life but also one who always keeps Christ unambiguously at the center. We were blessed to be able to get Megan Almon to speak to our school.”
