Our Alumni of Influence

20161105_alumni_of_influence_so_0230Missouri S&T launched a new tradition in 2011 when we honored our first Alumni of Influence. That initiative was a combined effort by the alumni, faculty, staff and students who selected our inaugural honorees. For this year’s celebration, we asked a committee made up of our 2011 honorees to review nominations and make recommendations. We thank those who served on the selection committee, and we salute our full delegation — 2011 and 2016 honorees — for your high achievement, inspired leadership and dedicated service.
