MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Megan G. Hughes, APR, has joined the Alabama State Bar as Outreach and Content Manager. She’ll manage the bar’s content-related assets and outreach efforts and assist Director of Communications Melissa Warnke. Hughes has 15 years of professional experience in the field of public relations, 12 of those years spent in higher education.

“Megan is an outstanding addition to our team, and she brings with her a wealth of experience,” said Alabama State Bar Executive Director Phillip McCallum. “Her skill set spans all aspects of design, communications and development, and we are thrilled to have her.”

Megan is a graduate of Auburn University and the University of Southern Mississippi, where she earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in public relations, respectively. She earned her Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) in 2015, and supports her community by serving on the Leadership Council at Aldersgate United Methodist Church, the State Committee for Distinguished Young Women of Alabama and the Montgomery Auburn Club Board of Directors.

They have one son, Seth, and enjoy spending time with family and friends.
