A career suggestion that changed everything: lifelong journalist Mary Lee Hagert looks back
,

On a warm afternoon a couple years ago, executive editor Mary Lee Hagert slipped out of the newsroom to enjoy the autumn bloom in front of the Lillie Suburban Newspapers building.
,

When Hagert's career began, female reporters were expected to wear skirts and dress shoes, even when the event they were assigned to cover was taking place at the top of an uneven stone stairway in a state park.
,

The Iowa State Daily was a cacophony of clattering typewriters, which student reporters like Hagert quickly learned to tune out as they wrote stories on deadline.
,

Giving tours to Scout troops and grade-school classes gave Hagert a chance to discuss the latest edition of the newspaper and the different jobs required to put it together.
,

Ramsey County Commissioner Victoria Reinhardt, left, and Hagert were "librarians for the day" and helped patrons at the North St. Paul Library in 2007.
,

In 2015 Hagert won a first-place award for column writing in the Better Newspaper Contest sponsored by the Minnesota Newspaper Association.
,

On her last day in the newsroom, Hagert and longtime coworker friends paused for a photo. From left are Linda Baumeister, Pamela O'Meara, Hagert and Kitty Sundberg.
