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.

Kathy Ireland offers NEIT graduates a model business success

Ireland is chairwoman, chief executive officer and chief designer of kathy ireland Worldwide, which markets 15,000 products. Forbes Magazine says her company has annual merchandise sales of $2 billion. Institute officials also characterized her as a “powerful advocate for women and children in need.”

The school gave Ireland and Cheryl Merchant honorary doctor of humane letter degrees. Merchant is president and chief executive officer of Rhode Island’s Hope Global, a 131-year-old textile manufacturing company that employs 700 people around the world. “If I can do it, you can do it,” Ireland told the standing-room-only audience at the Rhode Island Convention Center.

“One thing that really helped me after the Career Expo was writing those thank you letters to the companies for taking the time to talk to me. In addition once I received a one on one interview I brought in nice copies of my resume, references, and letters of recommendations from my teachers. The companies really appreciated the extra effort and plus it gives them something to look at while interviewing. Thanks again for everything.” – Jennifer Adamek, CBYT student who received 2 job offers as a result of attending the Career Expo event.
