Ms. Spadafor encouraged students to be strategic and bold in pursuing career goals and exploring unconventional career paths.

“Aspire to develop an uncommonly effective toolbox of skills and capabilities. Then apply those tools boldly in the service of others — addressing the complex challenges where talent and commitment are always in demand.”
