When I asked Ms . Gregory to please tell me how she felt  about receiving the Stem Leadership Star Award  award below in blue is what she  told me. Again,  words of a A selfless, dedicated and patriotic citizen.

Karen Gregory's Statement on  the Stem Leadership  Star Award 

I am honored and blessed to be recognized by Space Coast Women In Defense (SCWID) as the STEM Leadership Star.  I would not be the leader I am today without the positive mentoring and strong leadership modeling of the women and men before me.   And it is  the wonderful "team of leaders" that I worked with over the past 2 1/2 years that made this award and recognition possible.  

The SCWID women and men who have given selflessly of their time and support are the STEM leaders who deserve the recognition.  They are the STEM champions, out in the community, raising awareness and demanding STEM not be overlooked.  It is their actions that have paved the way for others to follow...they are the true STEM role models.  

They work tirelessly to educate and grow STEM awareness throughout the Space Coast community and schools.  It is their efforts that have grown the Space Coast STEM Education Council to 100+ supporters.  They are visiting the schools, elementary to high school, growing support and creating excitement amongst our next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.  They are at the local colleges and universities showcasing STEM and how it applies to everyday life.  They are partnering with industry, encouraging and developing strong STEM collaborations.  They are devoted to fundraising and acquiring financial support for the SCWID STEM Scholarship each year that helps a young adult pursue a STEM-related college degree.  

These are the efforts of the strong women and men of SCWID.  These are the true STEM Leaders in our community.  They are the Stars that are shining the light on STEM.  And I'm just blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of it.

On February 2013, the SC-WID President  and Founder , Ms Karen Gregory formed a STEM committee chartered with assessing the Stem needs of our community to explore ways where SC-WID members could support Stem education in our community, A selfless, dedicated and patriotic citizen.Karen knew that workforce projections for 2014 by the Department of Labor show that 15 of the 20 fastest growing occupations require significant science or mathematic training to successfully compete for a job, so she took action! Under her initiative The SC-WID committee canvased our community, performing a needs assessment, meeting with high school principals, academy directors, industry, community organization, and civic leaders and discovered our schools short on resources and a community willing to contribute their expertise, time, and resources to help. As a result, In October 2013, the SC-WID established the SC-STEM Education Council as a formal part of the SC-WID organization, since that time the SC Stem Education Council Membership has grown to over 100 active supporters  from all areas of the community. Ms Karen Gregory is also the President/Founder of HRSS Consulting Groups LLC, Merritt Island Florida and is a Lieutenant Colonel in the USAF Reserve supporting the Special Operations.
