A heartfelt thank you to Carolyn "Lyn" Ringer Lepre, Ph.D., for leading Radford University as interim president during academic year 2021-2022. She is an inspiration to faculty, staff, students, parents, donors and alumni as she represented us before the general assembly, spoke at innumerable events and interacted with each of us as individuals. Her genuine passion for higher education was evident throughout the year as was her warmth and encouragement as she greeted students and their families. We appreciate her strong and throughtful leadership and look forward to benefiting from her continued service as a Highlander.

Thank you
