Honored by ELITE Contributor, Service Spring Corp, Mike McAlear Memorial Jaden Silva Region 4 Sponsor: DH Pace Co, Olathe, KS School: University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS "I am the daughter of Kristine Travis, Risk Manager, of DH Pace Company, Inc. in Olathe, KS. I am currently attending the University of Kansas where I plan to major in Applied Behavioral Science and minor in Spanish. I am a member of the Honors Program and live in the Scholarship Halls. I graduated high school with enough college credits to be considered a sophomore, so I hope to complete my undergraduate studies in three years and begin my graduate program early. I went through formal recruitment at the beginning of the school year and am a member of Alpha Delta Pi - Tau here at KU. Their philanthropy is the Ronald McDonald House, so I will have the opportunity to volunteer there and at many other Greek events throughout the year. I plan to become heavily involved in the Lawrence community through volunteering and the hundreds of clubs offered on campus." Layne Tosney Region 7 Sponsor: Magic City Door, Birmingham, AL School: The University of Alabama, Birmingham, AL "Thank you so much for the IDA Scholarship! I am currently a sophomore at The University of Alabama and am studying Special Education. I love working with children and look forward to helping them achieve success. I am committed to working hard in school and being the best teacher possible. I very much appreciate your generosity and can't wait to see what the future holds for me."

Close enough that I need to declare my goals, have them always on my mind and focus all my actions to accomplish them so my future can be as bright as my aspirations. I know my strengths and weaknesses, what I'm good at and what I'm not, based on what I know are the parts of me that I need to work harder on, and the ones that I can exploit. In a near future, I aspire to be a good student: graduate from college with great grades and honors. But before that, I want to get a job for at least a year before I leave college so I can start getting experience in my field and be able to apply and get a well paid job right after I finish my studies. Starting my professional life will help me to climb faster and become my own boss faster than society expects girls to be professionally independent."
