The spring semester on the hill is always a time of looking back and reflecting on the accomplishments of our seniors with excitement. But is also allows us to look forward with anticipation of the many things our students, soon to be alumni, are going to do beyond the hill. We are very excited about this group of seniors and what they have accomplished during their time at Jewell. But we are even more enthusiastic about the goals and plans they have beyond Jewell.
Professor Liz Hoyt has influenced most of our seniors during the Capstone experience at Jewell. Many of you alums can remember getting ready to present your final project and the anticipation of the judges’ results. We are so very thankful for Professor Hoyt’s continuous emphasis on strong writing, good thinking and preparation for strong presentations in the business field. As she prepares to retire at the end of this semester we are reminiscing about her love of a well-formulated argument, the attention to detail, the demand for excellence and the wonderful preparation of our students for the field of business. She will be greatly missed in our department and we wish her the best in the next chapter of her life. Please join us on Tuesday, May 3, from 1-3 p.m. at 155 South Leonard Street, Liberty, MO 64068 for a reception for Liz.
Sincerely, Dr. Kelli Schutte, Chair of the Department of Business and Leadership
