S&T alumni touch everyday life.

This issue features Miners who craft and design the items we depend on every day — from the time you shampoo your hair in the morning until the moment you relax on your bed at night. Your fellow alumni, employed by companies like L’Oreal and Leggett & Platt, are the people who make these everyday items what they are — examples of innovative simplicity. A Missouri S&T education fuels creation and development of the essential goods and services that characterize our daily lives.

Issac Newton said, “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” Bearing in mind this apt sentiment, I invite you to imagine all of the ways you are lifted up by fellow alumni each day. Whether you consider the knowledge and experience gained on campus or the well-known items we use every day, Missouri S&T has allowed you to do more and live better.
