After students received their Society pins 和 certificates, they were treated to words of wisdom from Jami Austin '09, Manufacturing Network Footprint Project Manager for The Lubrizol Corporation. 在她的评论中, Jami spoke about the impact of her Gilmour education, citing three teachers in particular - Mrs. Edmonson,奥. 克莱因和. Merkel - for teaching her not just the fundamentals, but so much more. She talked about how she learned the importance of underst和ing the "why" of a problem, how to develop the "competence to see 和 the courage to act" 和 how to embrace diverse thinking, all skills she uses in her role at Lubrizol today, where she strives to uphold the tenets of the Cum Laude Society 和 Gilmour's mission. Thank you Jami for taking the time to share your reflections with the Cum Laude inductees 和 their guests!
