“As a student I worked in the Radford University Office of University Relations, and spent most of my time with designers in that office’s Creative Services area.  I mostly designed posters, brochures, newsletters and postcards.  After I graduated, the office hired me as a graphic designer,” says Trina Lambert ‘00.

Currently, Lambert works as the graphic designer at Red Orange Design.  “Red Orange Design has a wonderful clientele base that is growing and striving to grow more and more.  This industry continues to change and evolve every day, so it requires you to stay on your toes and really be a life-long learner,” says Lambert.

As a student at Radford University, Lingerfeldt majored in speech communication and was involved in the Sigma Kappa sorority.  “At Radford, I matured in more ways than I knew I could.  The university gives you more than just an education.  It gives you freedom, responsibility, guidance and many life lessons,” says Lingerfeldt.

“With the skills I learned at Radford University, my transition into the real world was very smooth.  I always had my hands in something and graduated with experience that still serves me today,” says Cyndi Todd ’86. 

Today, Todd is a freelance television producer, a media specialist and a publicist.  She recently published her first nonfiction biography, Babe Ruth, The Bride, The Battle: The Remarkable Life of Paratrooper Lewis P. Fern.

 “The book is a love story.  It is one of faith, commitment, triumph and tragedy.  Lewis had such a ‘Forest Gump’ type of life and witnessed things that I don’t think anyone will ever get to see.  The book is different, but my name is spelled different and that is how I like it,” says Todd.

“I will never forget driving around the corner and seeing campus in front of me.  I instantly knew that I made the right decision and that I was home,” says Angela Sheppard Underhill ’86, M.S. ‘87. 

Underhill earned her undergraduate degree in 1986 in Communications Sciences and Disorders, then her master’s degree in 1987.  “There were only four people in the graduate program at the time.  We had an advantage because we all were able to receive first-hand experience in the speech and hearing clinic, because we were responsible for staffing it,” says Underhill.
