Congratulations to Kayla Bias, class of 2019, who was selected to be this year’s recipient of the Maryland CIO Roundtable Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded annually to a BIS or CIS student who possesses leadership qualities and a desire to work in the field of IT management upon graduation.

Kayla is a senior in our Computer Information Systems program, in the Software Design track. She is also a BS/MS student, pursuing the MS in Business and Technology Management. Active on campus, she is a cross country and track athlete, Philanthropy Chair of the Student United Way Club, and a member of the BSU Gospel Choir.

Founded by Dave Hartman of Hartman Executive Advisors, the Maryland CIO Roundtable is dedicated to helping senior IT leaders increase their executive presence and find ways to add strategic business value to their organizations. Meeting monthly on the Stevenson campus, the Roundtable serves as a peer advisory forum where IT leaders meet monthly to openly discuss their unique challenges, and seek feedback and recommended solutions.

Kayla was introduced to the Roundtable at their monthly meeting on September 26.
