Who We Are

André Mershad

Program Director

André is a New Albany native with a deep passion for community wellness and sustainability. After graduating from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies, André moved back to New Albany in order to be close to family, and give back to their community. With a background in education and event planning, André plans to program events and teach workshops that cater towards the well-being of the teen community in New Albany, through a sustainable lens.

Xiyonne McCollough


Hey everyone! My name is Xiyonne and I am a junior at New Albany High School. My reason for joining Teen Connection comes down to one concept: accessibility. The mental health resources in my life haven’t been affordable, easy to find, or inclusive enough for me to feel truly helped-and I want to change that for good.
