“Be open to the unplanned.” Barr engineer delivers commencement address

May 15, 2017

Barr’s Vicki Hagberg was the commencement speaker at Hibbing (MN) Community College’s commencement ceremony May 12.

Hagberg, a geotechnical engineer and 2004 graduate of the college, told graduates not to worry about having it “all figured out” and to let their experiences guide their life path.

“My advice for you is to be open to the unplanned,” Vicki said. “It’s OK if you don’t end up quite where you first intended. Take your experiences and what you learn about yourself along the way and use that information.”
