Gregory McClain, who graduated in 1972 with a bachelor’s degree in engineering management and mechanical engineering, describes the importance of his education at UMR in his career.
I love MSM, UMR, MST.
You know, it’s a great place for everybody. Anybody that wants to work hard, get a superior education, have a very promising future, not afraid of failure, not afraid of challenges, you know MST is the place. I’m, you know, very fortunate to have been able to go there and, you know, come through the good and the bad times and it has certainly been a key in my life. I’m 65 years old now, I retired when I was 54 and I couldn’t be happier. I’m living the life and, you know, MST certainly played a major role in that.
