This award is very special as it exemplifies Mrs. Witenko’s life. Irmgard Witenko escaped from Germany in 1945 by swimming the Fulda River. After living in a refugee camp, she was given permission to emigrate to New York City where she cleaned office buildings.

Irmgard Witenko used to practice lists of English words while cleaning because she didn’t speak any English. After five years, she became a citizen and taught at a business school in the Hartford area. She then became the founder of Data Institute in 1963. In 1981, Mrs. Witenko sold that school to Mark Scheinberg and it has since become Goodwin College.
