That you've not walked, this path alone and those. That love you have walked with you fellow. Students. Friends. And especially, family. Members supported. You every, step of the way. They've.

Turn to face them and let's, all applaud. Please. Be seated. As. You. Enter into your professional, life I, encourage. You to be intentional. In finding. Mentors and, sponsors. That. Will help you in your journey. So. Many mentors, have helped me on my path in, addition. I've been fortunate to have the opportunity, to mentor several, students, from k-state and many. Others, throughout, my professional, career I. Encourage. You to find those mentors, and sponsors as, you start your next chapter in the business world and at. The same time to. Be a mentor, to others. You. Will be amazed, at, how much you can teach your peers. Sometimes. The, person that is guiding, you is, also. The one you. Can mentor. I've. Experienced. That so many times as, a partner, in fact. I would. Often choose to sit next to the newest staff member, on the audit team and ask. Them to teach me two things that, day. My. How. My technology, skills. Soared. As. You. Face the future take. Advantage, of new opportunities, that may, be a new city your. First professional, job or, starting. An advanced degree. Two. Weeks after graduation I, moved to Kansas City got. My first apartment and started. My professional, career I, was. A brand-new staff, accountant. After. Two weeks of training I was, assigned to the audit of a very, large airline. Headquartered, in Kansas City. TWA. Now. Part of American, Airlines I. Was. Told I would be doing the audit work for cash, it. Should take about two weeks in addition. As the, newest, and most junior. Member. I was. Also, to make the coffee for, the audit team and. Know. There. Was not accurate let. Alone a Starbucks, to be found anywhere only, an eighth cup. Mr., coffee and a, large, red, can of Folgers. Now. I had never audited. Cash before, nor. Made, coffee and, yes. Somehow. Auditing. Cash seemed. To be the easier, of the two. My. Manager, gave me great instructions. On how. To audit cash and he, also taught, me how to make the coffee. Water. On the right side eight. Scoops, of coffee in the filter. Okay. All this seems simple enough and I was ready to go I. Had. Just started reconciling. My first bank statement, when, someone, told me we. Need more coffee. Clearly. The priority. Was clear I took. The, empty pot to the restroom, rinsed. It out filled. It with water, starting. The process. Water. On the right side eight. Scoops, of coffee in the filter. Well. With. A 12-person. Audit, team, ten. Of, which drank coffee, you. Can imagine, how, much time I spent, working on cash that day. After. A ten-hour day and at, least ten pots of coffee I. Was. Exhausted. I had. Thought the CPA exam was, hard but. Nothing, like trying to balance my audit work, while. Keeping, up with the coffee pot I. Could. Only imagine, my, first evaluation. On this job. Candy. Was significantly. Over-budget, on, cash. And. She, makes terrible, coffee. One. Of the things that I had learned at my days at k-state was. To think outside the box. Clearly. That, was what I needed to do, so. Driving, home that evening I. Remembered. The large coffee, machines, I had seen used. Hundreds, of times at receptions, that and over Methodist, Church as. Tired. As I was I, stopped. At a Kmart. Purchased. A 50. Cup coffee, machine. And, bought. A high-end. Brand of, coffee I, got. Home, wash. The pot and was. Ready to go. The. Next morning, I went in extra. Early, set. Up the new coffee machine and, the. Coffee was ready when everyone, else arrived. The. Audit, room smelled. Like, a Starbucks, I. Was. Working, on cash when my manager came in he. Checked, out the new coffee machine. Poured. Himself a, cup of coffee and came. Directly to, my desk. He. Said brilliant, idea, candy, the. Coffee is exceptional. He. Then added, we've. Used, that 8 cup. Pot, for over 10 years, it's. Great, to have someone who thinks differently as. My. Mother used to say when. Life hands, you lemons make. Lemonade I. Didn't. Make lemonade, but. I eventually made. A mean, pot, of coffee. Everything. You do. Do. Well, it. All, matters. Cash. Did get done and yes. Under, budget and the. 50, cup coffee machine, endured, well, beyond, my two years, on the engagement. It, made it a lot, easier, for the first-year associates. For a long time, to follow. Perhaps. Being, at TWU as headquarters, reminded. Me of Amelia, Earhart who. Was from Atchison, Kansas. One. Of my favorite, quotes of hers, is this.
Some. Of us have, great, runways. Built, for us if, you, have one take. Off. But. If you don't, realize. It, is your, responsibility. To grab, a shovel, and build. One for yourself and, for. Those who will follow after. You. Each. Of you will be tested, all, in, different, and unexpected. Ways. Remember. All that you've learned during your time here at k-state in. Your. Business classes. Watching. Bill Snyder coach the football team the. Part-time job you had an egg evil or as a Resident, Assistant, but. Maybe most, importantly. The. Relationships. You, have built, all. Have. Added to your toolbox, for, your next step. I'm. Certain, when I became, managing, partner, in Washington. DC others. Wondered. Where. I learned, to think outside. The box. Making. A pot of coffee on my first assignment taught. Me more than I realized. It. Taught, me that I needed to approach, all tasks. Big. And small. With. The same level, of energy. And, creativity. You. Never, know, which. Of the assigned, tasks will, be the most important. To, your supervisor. I. Think. Caribou coffees, tagline, says, it well. Life. Is short. Stay. Awake for it I hope. You will. Congratulations. To, each of you your families. And, friends, I wish. You all the very best and, go. Cats. Kandee. Thank you for your inspirational. Remarks, for, our graduates, and eloquent, challenge, would, you please come. Back forward, and accept a small token of our appreciation for. Your participation, in today's ceremony. We. Are grateful to have Amy, button Renz president, and, CEO of the k-state Alumni Association, in, attendance, she will say a few words on behalf of the Alumni Association. Good. Afternoon I'm.

Allow me to join the long list of people that are going to tell all of you congratulations on. This, special day, we've. Reached a milestone that. Should be celebrated and I, hope you all take a second, to appreciate, what you've done, the. Degrees conferred to us as we walk across the stage today signal. To the world that we are technically. Sound. For. Some of us they, indicate that we understand, financial, statements, either how to read, them or how to construct them for, some of us they show that we understand effective, marketing, sales and promotions, techniques, and others. Show that we understand information systems, data management. Networking. And coding and finally. Some, of these degrees show. That we have a general understanding of how to manage business operations, of either a self started business or a long-standing. Corporation. These. Technical, skills are valuable, and they, will serve us well as we, move into the business world but. Let's be very careful, not to forget the other less. Technical, lessons we've had the chance to learn at our. Time as undergraduates, at Kansas, State University. Late. Nights at the business building have, shown us that perseverance, and sacrifice. Can, create great results, for, daunting tasks, the. Dreaded group assignments, have shown us that from, time to time we are going to have to pull more than our fair share of the work to, complete an assignment and. Other group assignments have shown us that sometimes teamwork can be pretty valuable. Events. Like the KSU night walk remind us to embrace diversity and, always. Be a positive force for change in our community we've. Seen countless student-led. Philanthropies, that. Emphasize, the importance, of giving back and we. Have benefited, from generous, alumni who. Gave back to us. It. Is these other less. Technical, lessons, that, define us as people, I have. No doubt that every student leaving the building today has the technical, skills that will define the employee. Or, the student, they will continue to be, it, is our continued, effort at these soft skills that will, define us as a person, and for. This reason I want to take just a few minutes, to. Reflect on some of the most powerful pieces of advice that I've been given over, the past few years, the. First and this will come as absolutely, no surprise to anybody who knows me pretty well comes, from Professor Hendricks on his. First day of class he, reminds his students that they have an obligation to. Quote. Be, where they are and this. Sounds. So simple but it is so much harder than it seems, we've. All sat in meetings that we felt could have been handled over email or classes.
That We felt were unimportant, and unnecessary, and at, those times it is so easy to escape, into our phone into, the world of text messages, in social media and email and games or whatever it is but, when we do that we, become passive. Participants. In our environment, and with, the skills and talent that you all have being. A passive, participant, is. Unacceptable. Only. By truly engaging, those around us, can. We gain the most from our interactions, so. As hard as it may be to keep our phones in our pockets, or, to close our laptops, I would, challenge all of us to be a little bit better about, being where. We are let. The world see what we can do when, we are active, participants, in the conversation, the. Second, of these lessons happened, only a few weeks ago when, I was attending a philanthropy, event it. Was in the middle of one of those busy weeks when the exam, cycle, seemed never-ending, and every. Group project, that had ever been assigned ever magically. Came to all at once and there, I was thinking about how busy my life had been over, the past few weeks when. I heard the guest speaker at the event say the phrase, adversity. Is what happens to you, stress. Is what, you do to yourself and. The. Point he so eloquently made was about attitude. Every. Day we, should expect, to field new, challenges, sometimes. It's going to feel like there isn't enough time in the day and the timing and difficulty, of these challenges, will, often, be out of our control what. Our attitude toward them is entirely. Our, decision, to make, being. A more, positive person, and maintaining, a positive attitude will. Make us more pleasant people to be around and may, encourage others to lend us a helping hand when we need it it. Seems there's this increasing, desire to wear, stress, as a badge. Maybe. If everybody, knew how stressed we are that we, only slept a few hours each of the past three nights and that we drank seven cups of coffee just to keep our eyes open maybe. They'll be impressed I would. Argue though that, producing. Results, while. Maintaining a, positive attitude is a, much more impressive feat by far and if. We can follow these first two lessons then, the third lesson becomes. Very easy I, hope. That, we can all take a little bit more time to enjoy, the, present. We've. Many, of us have spent the past few years awaiting the weekend, or Spring, Break or graduation. Or starting our jobs and being forward-looking. Is great. But. It can often force us to forget about right, now, so. Please, take. A second, and appreciate. What you've just done, the. Next chapter of our life is rapidly. Approaching so. Please let's make sure to read all the way to the end of this chapter before. Turning the page. Once. Again. Congratulations. To all of you I am so, proud to, have been a part of this family and I, can't wait to see the incredible future ahead of all of you thank. You. Thank. You Zack as a token of our appreciation we.
