Highlander Scholar: Juliana Utz

Graduated: 2010

Major: Dance

Since Graduation: I am currently a second year graduate student at The College at Brockport, State University of New York where I am pursuing a Masters of Fine Arts in Dance-Performance and Choreography.  Since graduating I have choreographed many works for the College of Brockport and have performed in a vast number of productions.  I am very involved in choreographing dances for the community and have performed my work in Brockport and Rochester NY.  Last semester I had the opportunity to co-teach an Introduction to Dance course to freshman students at Brockport.  Being back in Virginia this summer I have been teaching many dance classes and have also been involved with choreographing the city of Fredericksburg’s summer musical. This fall I will return to SUNY Brockport to continue my rigorous dance training and education.  I look forward to earning my MFA and one day fulfill my dream of being a dance professor.

Sarah Clark

Highlander Scholar: Sarah Clark

Graduated: 2009

Major: Psychology

Favorite Memory: "As an Honors Academy student I really enjoyed the personal relationships I developed with my professors as a result of contracting my classes for honors credit. It was those relationships that allowed me to make the most of my experience at Radford and in turn I gained mentors that would support me throughout my years at school."

Since Graduation: Sarah worked for two years as a researcher at Eastern Virginia Medical School. In 2013 she completed graduate studies in psychology at California State University, Long Beach.
