Jan Moore, Vice President for Economic Development at Ogeechee Technical College, recently announced the hiring of Katie Walker Byers as Conference Coordinator. Byers is responsible for all facility reservations and ensuring fluid communication between the person reserving the space, Information Technology, and maintenance. Byers said, “I make sure the space is reserved and that all details are in place, or ordered, before the event takes place. I will also promote our venues and show external people and companies how great our spaces are so they’ll book them.” She stated bringing in people who have not seen or used the facilities is what she is most excited about. Byers’ recent wedding reception, held in the Natural Resources Building Oak Room, was the first one to take place in the new building. She said she wants to share her event experience with others so they can have the same feeling. “I’m looking forward to combining my previous event coordinating experience with what I’m learning from Kathleen Kosmoski and Jan Moore to help maximize the use of the College’s rental facilities”.
Byers is a Statesboro native and graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations and a minor in Fashion Merchandising & Apparel Design. Before graduating from college, Byers traveled the world for three years with an organization called Up with People, where she was able to visit 16 countries.
Byers recently married Jake Byers and says they are the owners of a very outgoing cat, Kickin’ Wing, and will soon have a fourth addition to their family when Spud the Corgi arrives! She enjoys dancing and being able to continue that with Dancing with the Statesboro Stars. In her spare time, she enjoys sewing and creating her own pieces of clothing.
Moore said, “We are very excited to have Katie on board. Her marketing experience with post-secondary institutions will prove invaluable in this new position.”
