We chose to make Pittsburg our home

I was born in1954 in Greenville, South Carolina, the second of two sons of Harry and Betty Calloway. I attended public schools, which was where I met my wife, Denise. At Greenville Technical College, I studied mechanical engineering technology while also working as a draftsman for J. E. Sirrine Engineering.

After working on numerous engineering construction projects in South Carolina, Georgia, and Texas, I was hired by McNally Pittsburg in 1983 to work as a construction estimator. Although some will tout the fact that they were born in Pittsburg, I think it’s important to note that when McNally closed, Denise and I had many options, but we chose to make Pittsburg our home for the last 27 years.

Settling in Pittsburg, I began continuing studies at Pittsburg State University part-time and completed a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science in 1988. In 1999, I was awarded the PSU Outstanding Alumnus Award.I started Data Technique, a software and consulting firm, in October of 1988. The business was named one of Inc. magazine’s “Fastest Growing Companies in America” in 2006 and has twice been named a Novell Partner of the Year.

Where I'm from shaped where I stand on the important issues.


Community has always been important to me

I have have always looked for community and volunteer service opportunities. Among the positions and offices I’ve held: 

  • Pittsburg Planning and Zoning Commission
  • Pittsburg Airport Advisory Board
  • South Broadway Baptist Church Board of Trustees
  • Pittsburg State – College of Business Board of Advisors
  • Pittsburg Rotary Club
  • Civil Air Patrol Squadron Commander.

I have also served on advisory boards of many information technology corporations including CMP Media, Everything Channel, and Novell Service Advisor Council. In the early 1990s I served on Novell Inc.’s first Internet Advisory Council.

It will take the strength of the community to make change.
