In June 2017, Meredith Alt joined the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Bureau of Aeronautics (BOA) as the Aviation Education Program Manager. In her role, Meredith manages the Aviation Career Education (ACE) internship program, in which disadvantaged youth in Milwaukee participate in educational and leadership opportunities at General Mitchell International Airport. She also promotes youth aviation/aerospace and serves as a liaison to educators and the public about innovative aviation programs in the state.
Meredith holds a Master’s degree in Educational Policy Studies and a Bachelor’s degree in History from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Prior to joining WisDOT, she started her career as a K-6 teacher and taught English as a Second Language for several years in Mexico. She spent most of the past decade managing educational programs and projects at a multi-state consortium housed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Meredith is excited to work with educators and aviation enthusiasts to get more young people involved in aviation!
Outside of work, Meredith enjoys travel, spending time with family, and being outdoors as much as possible.
