Business Communication News

Business Communication alum Brendan Reynolds (second from the right in the photo of his colleagues) has just made a career change at WDVM-TV in Hagerstown, Maryland, moving from web producer to reporter. Brendan was an editor-in-chief of The Villager while he was a student at Stevenson.

He writes, "I just finished my first week as a full time reporter! First and foremost, I want to get better at shooting footage and editing my stories. I want to be creative, but I also have the time constraint of my deadline. My coworker said, “make air not art.” However, the artist in me is having issues...with that.

I was pressed for time the other day when I had to finish one of my stories as well as prepare for my two live shots. Despite the stressfulness of the situation, it honestly felt exhilarating to rush between writing, editing and running outside for my hit time."

Congratulations, Brendan! You've got this! (Photo from Facebook)

Business Communication faculty members Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse and former faculty member Christine Noya joined faculty members Romas Laskauskas and Laurel Moody to organize the fifth annual Faculty in the Halls Thanksgiving dinner for the first-year students in Western Run, Susquehanna and Patapsco Halls. The five mentors and the resident assistants, along with Sarah Mansfield, assistant vice president of residence life,  and Evan Huckfeldt, assistant director of housing operations in the Office of Residence Life, were happy to greet the students and serve turkey with all the trimmings to over 175 guests. It was a terrific collaborative effort and a wonderful night!

One Business Communication alum and a current BizComm senior both recently participated in the Baltimore Facebook Community Boost as members of the Profiles PR team. This initiative, with Facebook committing to provide 1 million U.S. workers and entrepreneurs the digital skills they need to compete in today's economy, gave alum Ali Winer (right, in the photo) and senior Grace Clark (left, in the photo) the chance to help deliver digital training to those in Baltimore seeking a career edge. Profiles PR is a marketing,  communications, and events firm based in Baltimore, with a national reputation for crafting and implementing programs that deliver measurable results for clients, according to their website.

How exciting for Business Communication alum Lauren Shapiro Mittleman and husband Matthew  -- they will be on national television on the DIY Network’s show "First Time Flippers"! The show will air on Saturday, December 8 at 9 p.m. (Photos from Facebook)

On its website, "First Time Flippers" notes, "Can two First Time Flippers turn a disaster house into a dream home? We chronicle the highs and lows of renovation as homeowners take on their very first flip. Will they make a profit? Or break the bank?"

Lauren and Matthew have been in the news recently, drawing the attention of the local Beth El congregation for their creation of a new line of travel-worthy baby cups, "CollapseAndGo." Interested readers can find out more about that project here.

The Business Communication department would like to congratulate alum Kayla Wilson ('12), who recently passed the Maryland bar exam and can begin practicing as an attorney after she is sworn in in December. Kayla's law studies at Michigan State University College of Law were a challenge, but her communication and time management skills enabled her to succeed. Great news, and success to you, Kayla!
