University of Missouri System President Mun Choi was the featured speaker for the graduation of 96 high school students and six undergraduate research associates of the 2017 Students and Teachers as Research Scientists (STARS) summer program at the University of Missouri–St. Louis.
Choi's address pointed to past generational feats – such as sending a man to the moon – and challenged the graduates to be as curious, creative, ambitious and civic-minded as their parents and grandparents had been before them.
