Commencement 2015: Randi Burns

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

Randi Burns was a UTA cheerleader in the late '90s, and left college to pursue a career in modeling and acting.

She had a family and moved cross-country several times, so her degree was put on hold.

A difficult battle with Lyme disease further prolongued her education. But she found her way back to UTA after receiving a proper diagnosis and proper treatment.

Randi started Lyme-Aid, a non profit to raise awareness about Lyme disease before graduating from the university she loves. We spoke with her a few days before she crossed the stage.
