alumni Virginia Lloyd and her husband, Maurice, the war-torn nation of Iraq was their home for the first three years of their marriage.
Lloyd was an intern with Studio One for seven consecutive semesters, working in a half a dozen different positions during her internship, including everything from a photographer to the show’s news anchor.
