Aijana Leonard, a Florida Tech student who will receive her MBA in project management in August, will head to Washington, D.C., in May as part of Citizens for Space Exploration, a group that advocates on behalf of America’s journey to Mars. She was recently recognized along with leadership of the Melbourne Regional Chamber of Commerce.
