From Jefferson Street to Wall Street: Brian Robinson '93 Finds Success In the Big Apple

During his senior year at Radford, Robinson attended a job fair and met representatives from Merrill Lynch “and other firms,” he said. “They had a glossy brochure of the World Trade Center, and I knew from that day I wanted to work in New York City. “I knew I had to come to the Street.”

“I want to do things at the highest level,” Robinson reiterates, “and Radford prepared me to perform on the world’s most challenging stage, to survive and thrive in New York City. Radford is a great and amazing school, and it really prepares you.”

Tara Grant represents Radford University's 100+ year commitment to providing educators for the Commonwealth of Virginia. 

2020 was Grant's '03, M.S. '09, 20th year in education. She just finished her fifth year as principal at Belle Heth Elementary. “It’s a heavy job, but it’s also a work of passion,” she said. 

As she celebrates achievements and overcomes setbacks, Smith remembers the Radford professors who inspired and supported her: the now-retired Radford University education professor who made breakfast and baked desserts every week for her students, the professor who offered her essential oils and let her have a day off from student teaching when she was tired and overwhelmed.

“So many incredible professors have helped shape me and guide me. You’re so much more than just their student, because they really do care for you. And, I love that about Radford University.”

It was her dream to be the first audiologist in El Salvador.

Growing up in El Salvador, Carla Rondeau Rodriguez '93 knew before graduating from high school that she wanted to work with people who experienced hearing disorders. There were no opportunities to continue her education in this field in her home country, so she researched programs in the United States. She was accepted into a number of universities, and ultimately chose Radford University’s Communication Sciences and Disorders program for her undergraduate degree.

“I applied to a lot of universities, but Radford’s program stood out,” Rodriguez said. “It’s a small program with amazing teachers and opportunities. Everyone was willing to help me. She then moved back to El Salvador and opened her very own clinic, seeing upwards of 400 children with hearing loss.
