Michael “Ryan” Medford graduated from California State University San Bernardino (CSUSB) with a Bachelor of Arts in public relations on June 17. Ryan, a third generation Canyon Laker, was recently accepted to the University of Redlands (San Diego campus) where he plans to earn a master’s degree in business management. “We she so proud of him for having a plan and sticking to it,” said Ryan’s mother Cathy Medford.
While attending CSUSB, Ryan worked at the school’s radio station for a year as an on air personality. He also worked the soundboard, recorded podcasts and produced web shows for the station.
Since 2015, Ryan has worked alongside Canyon Laker Doug Schulz, a concert promoter for Entercom radio stations in San Diego and concert promoter for the Canyon Lake Property Owner’s Association’s “Concerts at the Lodge.” Ryan has assisted Doug in setting up more than 30 concerts. “Doug has been a great mentor to me,” said Ryan. “I plan on working with him during my graduate program.”
Ryan’s future plans are to pursue a career in event production and management.
