Megan Terry

Megan Terry is graduating with a degree in dietetics and a minor in mathematics. She is from Hooper, Utah, and graduated from Fremont High School where she excelled in orchestra, track and field, and cross country, earning First Team All-State and Fremont High School Female Athlete of the Year honors. Megan continued her running career as a member of Utah State University’s cross country and track and field teams. She earned the Whitesides Scholar Award all 4 years of her running career and was runner-up in 2023 as the USU Whitesides Scholar Athlete of the year.

Megan has enjoyed her time at Utah State and has learned the importance of good nutrition. She has noticed through her experiences where gaps in nutrition education exist and hopes to fill some of those gaps by educating others and promoting equal access to good nutrition. Megan has always prioritized her education and enjoyed becoming a learner during her time at Utah State. She believes that becoming a creative thinker and problem solver, being dependable, and genuinely caring about people are more important than being a good student. Megan will begin pursuing a master’s degree in the fall with the goal of becoming a registered dietitian.

Megan comes from a True Aggie family as her grandparents, father, aunts and uncles, and two older sisters all graduated from Utah State University. Her younger sister is also currently attending.

Megan thanks her parents Beverly and Spencer, and her family and friends who supported and encouraged her in every endeavor she pursued.
