Central Region Volunteer Headed to Peace Corps
Megan Cain is one of many Little League volunteers who give their time and expertise to the program every year. Megan has been volunteering with her family at the Little League Central Region Headquarters in Indianapolis for more than seven years.
Megan and all the volunteers are preparing for Little League's Great Lakes and Midwest Region championships today. The two winners will advance to the 64th Little League Baseball World Series in South Williamsport, Pa., next week.
In September, Megan will become a volunteer of a different type. The Ball State University graduate will begin a two-year stay in Vanuatu for the U.S. Peace Corps. She will be putting her degree in Elementary Education to work in that South Pacific nation on behalf of the U.S. Government agency founded 50 years ago when President John F. Kennedy signed the legislation bringing the Peace Corps into existence.
"None of this would be possible without volunteers like Megan and her family," Central Region Director Mike Legge said. "Her father, Dale, has been volunteering here for 17 years. We're very proud that Megan will be representing our country in Vanuatu."
Dale's brother, Bob, has been volunteering for four years. The family is in charge of field maintenance during the tournaments.
Megan also is a Little League graduate, having played softball at Bell-East Little League in Indianapolis
