Your Commencement Speaker For Spring Graduation At Montana Tech
Montana Tech’s 2023 Spring Commencement will be held on May 6, 2023.
Weather permitting, the Commencement Ceremony will be held outdoors on Bob Green Field in Alumni Coliseum. If Mother Nature decides to intervene the Ceremony will be held in the HPER Complex. You can find out every detail concerning Spring Commencement HERE.
One additional detail to add to the Commencement page is the graduation speaker.
The graduation speaker for the 2023 Spring Commencement will be Montana Tech alumnus Bryan Larson. Bryan graduated from Tech with a B.S. in Engineering Science with a Minor in Business. (Class of 1997)
Bryan has had a distinguished career, having been with Stryker for over 26 years. Stryker is one of the world’s leading medical technology companies offering innovative products and services in the medical and surgical field to improve patient and healthcare outcomes.
Bryan has continued to climb in his years at Stryker, going from Manufacturing Engineer to Sr. Director of R&D, to Vice President of Product Excellence, to his current position of Vice President, R&D Endoscopy. His work with Stryker has brought him to every corner of the globe, but his heart is firmly tied to Montana Tech.
Bryan has been a tireless advocate for Montana Tech, and everything Orediggers. He is a current voting member of the Montana Tech Foundation, as well as a Digger Athletics Hall of Fame Member.
Bryan was a Defensive End for Coach Bob Green from 1992-1996. He was selected as Team Captain in 1995, and again in 1996. He was named a First Team All-American, as well as First Team All-Conference. He was also named First Team NAIA Academic All-American and was the recipient of the esteemed Edward F. Simonich Award.
For me, there is a short list of people who fully embody the idea of being an Oredigger. Bryan Larson might be right at the top of that list, and I can’t wait to hear what he has to say to the next group of graduating Orediggers.
