After working as a systems analyst for the Columbia County School System for nearly 30 years, Kathryn Bongard switched gears and began working a variety of IT positions at Textron, Inc., before eventually being promoted to senior IT manager in 2011. She is currently responsible for managing data migration activities and budgets, in collaboration with replacement of the legacy system to SAP, as well as the SAP application support.
To prepare for her career, Ms. Bongard received a Bachelor of Science in management and a Master of Business Administration in business from Southern Wesleyan University. Additionally, she is currently pursuing a doctorate degree with a specialization in IT. With her many years of experience, her greatest accomplishment so far has been the great passion she holds for people. She also helped to create a talent development program within the company. Inspired by her job, self-motivation and ambition, Ms. Bongard hopes to be promoted to a director position after she completes her doctorate degree, as well as teach at the university level. She wants to be remembered for how she treated people, and enjoys cross-stitching in her free time.
