Welcome Dawn Meadows, Program Specialist

Dawn Meadows HeadshotDawn Meadows joins the Indiana Online team as our newest Program Specialist. Dawn will be assisting the Program Team contributing new initiatives to further the growth and development of Indiana Online. As a school liaison, she will play a vital role in reporting current and future trends to counselors, teachers, parents, and staff, as well supporting our students in their online learning progression.

Dawn has a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Franklin College and a Master of Science in School Counseling from Butler University. She has worked with students for over 16 years as a school counselor at Indian Creek High School.

During her time at Indian Creek, Dawn assisted students with both academic planning and social/emotional needs, and we know that both of these experiences will be an asset to Indiana Online. In addition to her one-on-one time with students, Dawn built the master schedule, acted as dual credit and AP coordinator, and coordinated scholarship offerings and awards ceremonies.

In her free time, Dawn enjoys traveling with her three kids and spending time with her 120 pound St. Bernard.

We are so excited for Dawn’s skill set to be showcased at Indiana Online. Welcome to the team, Dawn!
