Students from all majors are invited to learn about real-world career progression and experiences through a panel discussion hosted by the College of Arts, Sciences, and Business (CASB). The event will be held 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10, in the Carver-Turner Room of the Havener Center. Lunch will be provided.
After lunch at 11:30 a.m., there will be time to meet the panelists and ask questions about their career presentations. The presentations are designed to provide students with general and authentic career guidance rather than to pinpoint specific job requirements.
The panelists, who are Missouri S&T alumni, are members of the CASB Dean’s Leadership Council and dedicated to supporting student success. They represent different market sectors, majors and career paths. Areas of interest include entrepreneurship, management, leadership, biotechnology, communications, defense, government and innovation. They include:
- Diane Butrus, chief operating officer of Diba Imports and a 1985 computer science graduate
- Steve Frey, principal system architect and engineer at L3 Technologies who earned a master of science degree in physics in 1986
- Michael Haynes, retired from Dow Chemicals and 1977 chemistry graduate
- Pamela Leitterman, retired from Hewitt-Packard and earned a 1975 mathematics graduate
- Cori Nelson, a data analyst at Cerner and a 2002 management systems graduate

The panel discussion will be moderated by Dr. Larry Gragg, Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor of history. To learn more about the panelists and their careers, visit the Dean’s Leadership Council site.
