Now at Mason County High, she has made her chapter one of the most active in Kentucky.
Roberts is a leading voice in the Kentucky family and consumer sciences community and has created joint events with other career and technical student organizations. She has worked to expand her students’ experiences outside of the classroom. Through partnerships with local education extensions, she was able to broaden her students’ culinary experiences.
