Steinhart tells grads: ‘Listen and learn from your mistakes’

Be a team player, earn respect, and learn from your peers and mentors. That’s the advice Jeff Steinhart, EMgt’79, gave to more than 1,000 new Missouri S&T graduates during May 2014 commencement ceremonies. Steinhart, retired vice president of engineering and environmental affairs for Anheuser-Busch Inc., talked about his career with A-B and offered advice to the graduates.

“Today’s graduation is a transition point into the next chapter in your lives,” he said. “The number one person responsible for the advancement in your career is yourself, and you should never forget that.”

During commencement, Steinhart was awarded the doctor of engineering degree, honoris causa.
