Cindy Bella is no stranger to Youngstown State University where she worked in the Office of the Bursar from 2000 to 2014. She is a new face at WYSU as of October 2014, taking the job of administrative assistant for the radio station.
A 1975 graduate of Austintown Fitch High School, Cindy grew up in Austintown. She received a BS in Business Administration from YSU in 1981, and later an MBA, also from YSU.
Tackling a new job has been a challenge, but Cindy says she is learning. "There is so much to learn, but the WYSU staff is great, and it has been a good move," she says. She loves listening to the news programming that WYSU airs.
Cindy has two grown children: her daughter, Elaina, followed her mom to YSU and graduated in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in science. Elaina recently moved from Texas back to the Mahoning Valley. Cindy’s son, George, is currently in US Navy stationed in Louisiana. He is married to Paige and they have a son.
Since her children have been on their own, living far away for the most part, Cindy fills her time by going out with friends and doing some of her favorite things including listening to live music, going to movies, and of course, visiting her children and grandson when possible.
