The Morehead-Cain Team: Get to know us!

Megan Mazzocchi

Associate Director and Director of Alumni Engagement

Since joining the Foundation staff in 1985, Megan has worked in many different roles in support of the Morehead-Cain Program. She has done everything from overseeing the selection process, advising the scholars, and planning events such as the triennial Morehead-Cain Alumni Forum to coaching new staff members, helping create every iteration of the Morehead-Cain website, and producing the annual year in review and other publications. Perhaps her favorite aspect of her long tenure at the Foundation has been witnessing firsthand the positive impact of nearly 2,000 Morehead-Cain Scholars during their undergraduate years at Carolina and then staying in touch as they’ve gone on to lead meaningful and interesting lives.

In addition to her roles at Morehead-Cain, Megan has occasionally put her UNC Drama degree to work onstage in a variety of plays and musicals, including a few very special shows in which her daughters also appeared. She and her husband, Jay (an editor at UNC Press), are longtime parishioners of St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Chapel Hill, and Megan is a member of the board of trustees of Cardinal Gibbons High School in Raleigh.
