Crow reappointed to prevention council
On the Y-K Delta
Meghan Crow of Bethel was reappointed last month by Governor Sean Parnell to the Statewide Suicide Prevention Council. The council works to broaden the public’s awareness of suicide and the risk factors related to suicide; enhance suicide prevention services and programs throughout the state; and develop healthy communities through comprehensive, collaborative, community-based, and faith-based approaches. In addition, the council builds and strengthens partnerships between public and private entities that will advance suicide prevention efforts in the state. Crow has been a social worker at Bethel High School since 1998. She previously worked in Bethel as a community educator and legal advocate for the Tundra Women’s Coalition and as a Jesuit volunteer. She earned a bachelor’s degree in English from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., and a master’s degree in social work from Boston College. She is an Alaska-licensed clinical social worker, holds a state special services education certificate, and coaches girl’s high school basketball and junior high cross country. Crow is reappointed to a seat reserved for a secondary school employee.
