Alumnus Evan Hadfield returns to Lakefield College School
Lakefield College School proudly welcomed alumnus Evan Hadfield, Class of 2003, to the school on Friday, October 4.
Evan’s life and career have been both interesting and varied since his graduation – he is a perfect example of 21st century experiential learner.
Evan is best known recently as the Marketing Director for his father, Col. Chris Hadfield.
Millions around the globe were captivated by the images and outreach from Col. Hadfield on his five month mission to the international space station – we saw and experienced space like never before and all through the magic of social media – facilitated by Evan.
The wizard behind the curtain, Evan educated the world on life outside the atmosphere – providing experiential learning where there was none before.
Evan addressed the school population and shared his views on how he was prepared to take on a career that was outside of his training – a career that didn’t exist when he attending school.
He encouraged the students to take risks – experience life and be open to new opportunities. While there is value in reflecting on your past, it is equal if not more value in looking towards what the future may bring.
