Fran Lawas-Grodek is a computer engineer of the Office of the Chief Information Officer, and has worked at GRC for 29 years. Born and raised in the Cleveland OH area as a first generation Filipino-American, Fran attended Cleveland State University where she obtained her Bachelor of Science in Computer Science after switching majors from Accounting. Just before graduation, Fran was immediately hired to work for NASA Lewis Research Center during a mass fresh-out hire, where her experience and training with the IBM Job Control Language, database technology, and punch cards made her an asset for the business data processing branch, as they embarked upon a large migration to new IBM-compatible mainframes and database management systems from their old COBOL systems on the Univac mainframe.
