Ireland tells grads how to design lives for success

It wasn’t part of the script.

Kathy Ireland stepped out from behind the lectern. She took the microphone with her. Was this going to be one of those defining moments when years from now people would still say that was “the Ireland at NEIT episode?” What might the woman who appeared in 13 consecutive Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues – and who is also an actress, author and chair, CEO and chief designer of Kathy Ireland Worldwide – do?

Was she going to model the cape that moments before had been draped around her neck as she received an honorary doctor of humane letters degree Sunday at New England Institute of Technology’s commencement ceremony at the Rhode Island Convention Center? Might she do something even more daring?

Whatever was going to happen, the news photographers weren’t going to miss it. They trained their telephoto lenses on Ireland. The 1,175 grads and their families and friends craned their necks to see the stage and the screens showing Ireland bigger than life. Ireland had everyone’s attention. She’s good at grabbing attention. She twisted to demonstrate how she would model a swimsuit.
