Lorna M. Johnson

Passion, commitment, vision, purpose. These are words we all recognize and admire. But it is the culmination of these words that, when put into daily practice, brings about change — even in those who never believed change was possible.

That is the DNA of Lorna M. Johnson. She lives by example and teaches those she impacts to adopt that same mindset. Her winning attitude carried her through tough times early in life, developing a deep personal understanding of poverty, racism, and culture clashes. This, along with her genuinely selfless spirit and eternal optimism is what sets her apart from many other philanthropists.


Roland Burdett III

Not long after Betsie Miklos founded Miklos Systems, Inc. (MSI) in 1993, she hired a young man named Roland Burdett as her first employee — and her first vice president. Burdett was tasked with managing and growing this small software development and systems engineering firm during the industry’s infancy.

In Burdett, Miklos had landed an experienced software engineer born and bred in the company’s Fairfax, Virginia community. Burdett was educated at nearby Mt. Vernon High School and held a BS in Computer Science from George Mason University. But he was more than just a local computer whiz kid. He had a vision which meshed with Miklos’ own: To flourish through a focus on exceptional customer service and an employee-centric company culture.
