Alumni Profiles

Sociable work

Paula Sydnor Hubbard's former classmates might be surprised to find out the diminutive social work student who took a domestic violence shelter internship wound up in a top position at one of the world's largest oil companies.

Mining time

When Brad Belk came to Mizzou in 1973, he was a directionless kid. A friend advised him to take art history courses so he could sleep during the slide shows.

Travel is therapeutic

Although Penny Moyers is an occupational therapist (OT), a traditionally hospital-bound profession, she has always liked fieldwork -- even if it got her into a little trouble now and then.

An uncivil war

What started as an intriguing question about family history turned into almost a decade of detective work by Donald Allendorf.

A delicious career path

In a magazine-writing class, Sarah Copeland got a tasty assignment: Profile a professor moonlighting as a pastry chef at Cherry Street Wine Cellar.
