“Students must develop effective problem-solving, critical-thinking, collaboration and communication skills — tools they need to compete and succeed in the global economy,” Vince M. Bertram told just over 1,200 graduates at two commencement ceremonies in May. Bertram is president and chief executive officer of Project Lead The Way, a nonprofit organization that develops K-12 curricula in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields, and helps train instructors.

“Missouri S&T graduates, we need you,” Bertram said. “We need your intellectual gifts and your entrepreneurial spirit. We need your compassion and your courage. We need your leadership.”
