Dr. Tony Barrett’s Retirement Lecture

Saturday, April 14th, 2018

Dr. Tony Barrett gave a retirement lecture yesterday evening in the Mitchell Auditorium. Those in attendance included family, friends, faculty, students, alumni, and a few media members. Dr. Barrett was my freshman Honors Dignitas professor. I still recall a few of the assignments that I had to complete for his class. Dr. Barrett challenged us to create our own personal mission and vision, as well as write our own obituary. These assignments were thought provoking as a freshman in college and really made me think about the legacy/impact/footprint I wanted to leave during my lifetime. We also read, in depth, the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey. It is crazy the little things you can remember from a course over 6 years ago. I think that helps to justify just how meaningful Dr. Barrett’s class was in my education.
