Legislative Action Coordinator
Tyler Lester
tlester5@radford.edu

Hello, fellow Highlanders! Tyler Lester here at your service as the Legislative Action Coordinator (LAC) for Radford University's 100th Student Government Association (SGA). As the LAC, I work to assist the SGA in all legislative efforts in addition to serving as a liaison between SGA and Virginia's public officials, planning RU's annual Advocacy Day and working to promote citizenship among students. I am a senior political science major and a self-proclaimed and proud political nerd. My political passions are rooted in state and local politics/governance and education policy. Admittedly, my approach to politics is a bit nontraditional in the sense that I believe much more unites than divides us; that true progress and meaningful change is fostered through respect, deliberation and personal integrity.
I consider it a high honor to serve the student body of Radford University and if I can be of service, please do not hesitate to contact me by dropping a line to by inbox.

 

Community Services Coordinator
Rebecca Pinsky

Hey fellow Highlanders! I’m Rebecca Pinsky, the Community Service Coordinator with the Student Government. This is my senior year here at Radford and I don’t want to leave without giving back to our school and our community. As a Communication Studies major and Philosophy minor, I’ve learned many things that serve as assets to SGA work. This year, I plan to collaborate with the other staff members and senators to improve community engagement, student pride, and school unity. If this sounds like your cup of tea (or Gatorade or coffee, etc), reach out! You can email me at rpinsky@radford.edu or leave a message in the SGA office on the second floor of the Bonnie. You can also visit the office to sign up for the Community Service Council, a great opportunity to amass service hours and support Radford.

Public Relations Coordinator
Leanna Mattson
lmattson1@radford.edu

My name is Leanna Mattson, and I am a senior majoring in Communication Studies. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been accepted into the accelerated program, so I’m also working on my masters for Corporate and Professional Communication. This is my first year in the SGA, but I have always been heavily involved with Radford University. I have been a Peer Instructor for UNIV100 for two years, a Peer Mentor for Students on the Road to Success and UNIV150, a tutor and scheduler at the LARC, as well as a Quest Assistant and Parent Orientation Guide for Quest 2013 and 2014. I am in love with Radford, so when I had the opportunity to apply for the Public Relations Coordinator position for the SGA, I had to take it! I’m very excited to put my experience in the communication field and my love for the school to use in the position. My ultimate goal for the year is to help create a more unified student body that is in love with this beautiful school as much as I am. If you have any ideas, questions, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email me (I am a Communications major after all, so I love talking)!

Hello there, my name's Carly and I am a Communication major. This is my second year as SGA's Website Administrator. I'm also the Firm Director for RU's Public Relations Student Society of America. I have to say, the more involved I get on campus, the more I love Radford University! Sadly, this is my Senior year here, but I encourage you to get involved and find your home at RU!

 

Historian
Sarina Eames
seames2@radford.edu

My name is Sarina Eames and I am a second semester Junior. I am majoring in Criminal Justice and minoring in Forensic Studies. I joined SGA to get more involved around campus and it definitely helped me out for sure. Joining SGA opened up a lot of other gateways for me to join more organizations on campus. I took on the role as the community service coordinator  Fall of 2013 and then saw that there was an opening for another position the following semester. I then took on the role as the Historian and continued to hold that position until this day. I love it so much because I enjoy capturing moments and turning them into unforgettable memories using my camera. I always knew photography was a special hobby for me, but I never knew I would be able to use it in this amazing way like I do for SGA.
