Amy B. Woszczynski, Ph.D. (Windsor Class of 1984) graduated with a Bachelor of Industrial Engineering from Georgia Tech (1988). After graduating from Georgia Tech, Amy worked as an engineer/manager in the apparel industry and then moved into Information Technology. She later graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration from Kennesaw State University (1991), and a PhD in Master Industrial Management from Clemson University (2000). After completing her PhD, Amy accepted a position at Kennesaw State University in 2000. She is now the Interim Chair and Professor of Information Systems in the Michael J. Coles College of Business.

Amy married John Woszczynski in 1990, and they have 2 children: Jason (14) & Andrew (13). Like her parents Mariann and Olin did when she was a student at Windsor, Amy now spends all of her “spare” time watching Jason play baseball or Andrew play basketball – and she loves every minute of it! Amy is a huge Georgia Tech fan and she enjoys the Braves as well.
While at Windsor, Amy had the great fortune to play on very successful Lady Knight’s sports teams, earning 2 state titles in softball, 1 state title in basketball, 2 state runners-up titles in softball, 4 region titles in softball, and 2 region titles in basketball. The softball team followed on the great tradition established by their predecessors, who established a dynasty that was continued, with the Windsor Lady Knights winning every single softball state title from 1971-1981. Amy was on the State Champion Lady Knights basketball team that went undefeated. The following fall, the softball team did the same, winning the state title without losing a game.
Amy’s Memories: “Looking back on my time at Windsor, I was able to thrive in the small classrooms and developed close friends, many of whom played softball and basketball with me over the years. I had the honor of representing Windsor at the Governor’s Honors program at Valdosta State, which was a wonderful experience and helped prepare me to succeed at Georgia Tech. I still occasionally meet people who grew up in Macon during our time, and they all remember Windsor’s successful girls’ sports teams. I think that my experiences on the softball field and basketball court taught me how to win with grace and lose with dignity – although I never liked to lose! Those experiences at Windsor helped me learn how to compete and to achieve many goals throughout my life. I will always be a Windsor Academy Lady Knight.”
