Terri Bonoff

Terri Bonoff served as a MN State Senator from 2005-2016. Prior to her Senate service, she had a business career working at Jackson Graves, a women’s retail specialty chain, before moving on to Tonka Toys as manager of promotional services. She then served as VP/GM for the computer products division of Navarre Corporation.
As senator, Terri made education a major focus of her work. As chair of the Minnesota Senate Higher Education and Workforce Development Committee she championed legislation to create the Minnesota PIPELINE Project which expands dual training and apprenticeship programs in Minnesota in emerging and high-demand occupations by partnering employers and students. This program was featured two separate times in Forbes as a nation-leading and innovative approach to address student debt and the skills gap.
Bonoff currently resides in both Minnetonka and Atlanta as a result of her husband joining Delta Airlines. Based on the success of the MN PIPELINE Project, she joined Georgia Tech CEISMC to launch an Atlanta-based PIPELINE Project to serve Atlanta youth.
