Committee and is developing a texting program for
the Chapter to more efficiently notify members of
upcoming events.
Krista is the daughter of Jim and Mia Rogers of
Jacksonville, FL. She graduated from Christ's
Church Academy, where she was valedictorian of
both her middle school and high school classes.
She received her Bachelor of Science degree
in Organizational Leadership with honors in
december 2016 from Southeastern university
and began her graduate courses while still an
undergraduate. She expects to receive her Master's
of Business Administration degree, with emphasis
on executive leadership, in december of this year.

"i believe
that success is
achieved when
teammates are cared
for, goals are met and
a difference is
made."

"I hold my academic involvement in the highest
regard and enjoy learning at every opportunity -
inside and outside of the classroom. I absolutely
love the topic of leadership and, when not
studying, enjoy reading the autobiographies of
successful businesspeople and also about the
history of our great nation," Krista said.
She does a lot more than read about leadership
- she takes the lead. Her résumé reads like a
"Who's Who," which isn't surprising because Krista
was named to the Who's Who Among Students in
American Universities and Colleges. She has assumed
numerous student leadership positions both in
undergraduate and graduate school. Her studies
have taken her to europe and the Middle east.
Most recently she completed study in Cambridge,
england and at one of the disney Institutes.
When she imagines taking the lead in business
she says, "I believe that success is achieved when
teammates are cared for, goals are met and a
difference is made."
Her advice for a student entering college: "Be an
active participant in the classroom and give your
best to your studies. Also, discover, develop and
dream. discover what you are passionate about.
develop personally and professionally. dream of
the future you wish to see and make it happen."
She hopes her future holds a position in the Walt
disney Company upon graduation. "I highly respect
disney's mission and simply wish to be a part of
introducing happiness to the world's children every
day. I would be honored to carry on the legacy of
one of the greatest business minds of the modern

era," she said. Krista knows something about
disney beyond just visiting the theme parks; her
undergraduate thesis is 200 pages on the "different
leadership theories that contributed to disney's
success."
"It's been my dream to work there my entire life,"
she said.
And while Krista is the first woman in her family to
become involved with ABWA, "All of the women
in our Chapter are phenomenal mentors to me
and have become like family," she said. "Though
representing very diverse fields of expertise, each
of these ladies have invested in me and taught me
invaluable lessons on a personal and professional
level."
"And because I was awarded the national
president's Scholarship, I have been invited to
be the guest speaker for the upcoming general
meeting of the Space Coast Women's express
network.
"I am so excited! Joining the ABWA family is truly
one of the best decisions I have ever made,"
Krista said.
Leigh Elmore is the principal of Elmore Editorial and resides
in Kansas City, MO.
