Webinar hosting presenter Jon Sowards
Vice President of Operations and Special Projects
As a career officer in the United States Army, I had the great fortune to lead multiple organizations, manage talent, plan projects, execute operations, manage risk and develop workforce training programs. By nature, I am an action-oriented problem solver who enjoys conceptualizing and communicating innovative solutions to complex challenges.

Prior to leaving the military, I was blessed to serve with the US Army Soldier for Life program. My job, on behalf of the Department of the Army, was to engage communities, industries, government agencies, non-profits organizations and corporations.... all in an effort to better CONNECT our transitioning Soldiers and Veterans to the numerous employment, education and/or health resources that exist in communities across the country. It was truly noble and rewarding work.

Fortunately, I get to CONTINUE TO SERVE in a new (but familiar) capacity. As the Vice President of Operations for the South Central Workforce Development Board and it's non-profit organization, Employward, I will lead our effort to develop innovative employment and training programs for Transitioning Military, New American/ International Workers, Secondary and Post-Secondary Education Graduates and individuals who have barriers to employment within a 10-county region.
