UNK Student Body President, Student Regent appears on Rural Futures Podcast Episode 25


March 27, 2019 — “I try to keep myself and my followers as focused and motivated as possible,” said Logan Krejdl, a senior studying Business Administration and Sports Management at the University of Nebraska at Kearney (UNK).

Krejdl shares his bold ideas and authentic experiences about leadership, integrity and rural-urban leadership during the Bold Voice student segment of Episode 25.

A natural leader from Aurora, Neb., Krejdl is UNK’s Student Regent and Student Body President. “I’m really lucky enough to be working with some of the best and brightest students on our campus, serving as the Student Body President and Student Regent,” he said.

“I describe my leadership style as adaptable,” Krejdl said. Being able to get involved on UNK’s campus has given him a look into the kind of leader different organizations need. “Very rarely do I use the same leadership style in different organizations,” he continued.

“I really like the problem solving aspect that comes with leadership,” Krejdl said. Getting his hands dirty and working in the trenches to accomplish goals and make progress is an important part of leadership that he enjoys.

During the segment, Krejdl stressed the need for face-to-face communication and genuine relationships to balance the high-tech, high-touch future of leadership. He also emphasized the importance of making connections and networking during college.

He also shares part of his life philosophy which is centered on kindness, respect and love. “One of my biggest mottoes is just general kindness,” Krejdl said. “Loving people can go so much farther than anything else, and at the end of the day all we have is each other so be kind to everyone,” he continued.
