Meet the graduates: Tyrah Cobb-Davis '19

Tyrah Cobb-Davis

As we look ahead to Commencement, we’d like to introduce some of our 2019 graduates! Tyrah Cobb-Davis ’19 is an environmental science major who has been selected for a six-month paid internship with Oak Spring Garden Foundation,

Here’s what she had to say about what’s next, and how Randolph prepared her for life beyond the Red Brick Wall:

“I have been offered the position of landscape management and administration intern. Some of the tasks include:

  • interacting with the landscape and trees team to develop an understanding of broader landscape management in the context of ecological zones, wildlife, and historical development of the Oak Spring property
  • hands-on invasive species removal and native tree plantings
  • water quality monitoring and sampling
  • writing, editing, designing, and preparing written material for the Foundation and public outreach
  • serving as a host or tour guide for guests

Randolph fosters an environment that allows students to take advantage of many different opportunities. I have had the chance to take on many leadership roles in addition to taking advantage of research and internship experiences. These experiences have allowed me to gain hands-on experience and made me feel confident in my abilities to work independently, collaboratively, and effectively. I am thankful for the interpersonal and transferable skills that I have gained during my four years and feel well equipped to take on any position in the future.”

Randolph’s 2019 Commencement ceremony is scheduled for Sunday, May 12 at 10 a.m. in The Dell. Find the full schedule and more information at
