Tell Your Story

Kristin Scroggin can't do math, or bake a pie, but she is a GREAT speaker! Kristin has her Masters in Communication Studies, Bachelors in Communication Arts and has been a Communications Lecturer at the University of Alabama in Huntsville for 11 years. Her passion is generational diversity, and for the past five years she has spoken at conferences and organizations across the United States ranging from Fortune 500 companies to tiny non-profits, about this vital topic.

She will assist attendees from across the region to cultivate a sustainable, vibrant, multi-generational base with her "Tell Your Story" presentation which guides nonprofits to tell their story to the community, to funders, and to potential employees and volunteers.
