Ajena Cason Rogers

Ajena Cason Rogers has been the Supervisory Park Ranger at Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site since 2010 where she manages day-to-day interpretive operations, program development, and community outreach. Ajena has been a National Park Service interpreter since 1984 and often feels she “grew up in the Park Service.” During her career she has worked on the Blue Ridge Parkway, at Booker T. Washington National Monument, Independence National Historical Park, and Valley Forge National Historical Park, but feels that being at Maggie L. Walker NHS is the perfect fit. “It allows me to bring together my love of historical storytelling, my passion for interpreting the experiences of women and African Americans, and the community leadership and public history skills I learned through the years to help more people know about a wonderful, inspirational leader such as Maggie Walker—a dream come true!”
