Our Very Own

Talmesha Richards, a second-year grad student in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, is busier than usual this term. She’s out in the field—as a Ravens cheerleader.

Richards’ experience on the dance team at UMBC gave her the edge when competing against some 250 hopefuls for a seat on the 54-member cheerleader squad. At UMBC, Richards was a Meyerhoff Scholar who majored in chemical engineering and math and graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 2004.

Now she works in a breast cancer lab directed by oncologist Nancy Davidson, herself a Ravens season-ticket holder. Richards practices two nights a week, either at Ravens’ training facility in Owings Mills or a gym in Millersville. She’s part of the dance squad, not the stunt squad. “I’m just a dancer. I like to stay low to the ground.”
