Computer Engineering Technology '86

Beverly Gatton

With more than 20 years of experience in the information technology field, Beverly is currently a national project manager with Fidelity Information Services for banking institutions across the country. FIS is a global provider of technology assistance to the financial services industry and Beverly oversees banking software implementation projects.

Beverly earned her associate degree in computer technology in 1986 when the campus was known as Kansas Technical Institute. However, her connection with the university goes well beyond her education - for six years Beverly taught night classes on the polytechnic campus as part of the applied business software certificate program, and since 2003, she has served on the Kansas State Polytechnic Computer Systems Technology Advisory Board. Beverly and her husband, Lee, also were the first family to ever make an estate gift to Kansas State Polytechnic.

Additionally, Beverly holds a bachelor’s degree in business and public administration from the University of Texas at Dallas and a master’s degree in management of information systems from Friends University in Wichita.

Beverly's husband, Lee, is a 1971 graduate of the electronic engineering technology program and is the 2012 Alumni Fellow.

Beverly is the twenty-third Alumni Fellow from the Kansas State Polytechnic campus. The requirement of a fellow is that he or she has distinguished him- or herself in their respective career field. The purpose of the program is to bring prominent and outstanding alumni back to campus to recognize their efforts and to learn from their expertise and life experiences.


Note: If you’re a Kansas State Polytechnic faculty member, you can nominate the next Alumni Fellow.
