State Representative Megan Godfrey believes in a better Arkansas for all residents of Springdale. Driven by compassion, equality, and excellence, Megan advocates for families, for fairness, and for the future of our state.
Megan and her husband Daniel choose to raise their kids in Springdale because they see diversity as an asset. The cultures and experiences of the individuals who make up District 89 enrich our community. After learning Spanish at Springdale High School and the University of Arkansas, Megan went on to work with culturally and linguistically diverse communities as a public school teacher, spending the majority of her career as an ESL teacher and specialist in Springdale and now serving as the Co-Director of ESL for Fayetteville Schools. She brings her servant leadership and advocacy to her role as the state representative of her hometown.
As a mom, Megan wants the best for her family. She also knows that all moms want the same for theirs. By fighting for a safe, supportive, successful Arkansas, Megan works hard to ensure that all residents of our community win.
In her first term, Representative Godfrey earned several awards and recognitions that District 89 can be proud of, including the Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families Legislative Champion Award, the Arkansas Municipal League Distinguished Legislator Award, the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce Business Matters Leadership Award, 2019 Northwest Arkansas 40 Under 40, and serving as the House of Representatives Minority Leader Designee to the Arkansas Legislative Council.
