Sabrina Kay is committed to returning the American educational system to its former glory by introducing new learning models and connecting the workforce with classrooms. Her quest answers the seemingly logical question: Why wait until college students have already graduated to give them work-based training? Her goal is to use the Penn's learning model as a framework, conduct further research, perfect the model, and enhance students' social mobility and opportunity through education. The laboratory of her ambition is Fremont College. Dr. Sabrina Kay became Chancellor of Fremont College in 2007 and targeted nontraditional students, teaching them through collaboration and real-world cases to navigate the issues that impact everyday work life. According to Sabrina, "We're on this earth as stewards of life for a small period of time. The difference we can make is through becoming part of others' inspiration and helping make their dreams and aspirations into reality." She feels incredibly lucky that, through her work with Fremont College, she gets to do that every day. Technology is moving faster than we can keep up. Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone keeping you up to date and current with all things Tech in the business world?

Amelia is a passionate aviatrix, inspired by adventure and flight. In June of this year, Amelia will recreate and symbolically complete the 1937 flight of her namesake, Amelia Mary Earhart. In 14 stops and approximately 100 hours of flight time, she will fly a Pilatus PC-12NG around the world, and upon completion will be the youngest woman to circumnavigate the globe in a single-engine aircraft. In order to make this dream a reality, she created the Fly With Amelia Aviation LLC and has spent the past year plus relentlessly pursuing, pitching and securing big-name sponsors for everything from her aircraft to the food she will eat in flight. To date, she has single-handedly raised millions from companies including Pilatus, Jeppesen, Honeywell, Signature Flight Support and Dallas Air Motive, among others. Amelia’s goal with this flight is to inspire a new generation of aviators and to motivate others to pursue their dreams and passions. In conjunction with the around-the-world flight, Amelia started the Fly With Amelia Foundation Fly With Amelia Foundation, a 501c3 that provides flight scholarships to young women, aviation career mentoring, and STEM education programs.
