Stevenson University Business Communication senior and quarterback Dan Williams has been named as one of 169 candidates for the 2018 Allstate/American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Good Works Team.

According to gomustangsports.com, "the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team has been one of the most esteemed honors in college football for more than 25 years. The student-athletes who are nominated for this award not only demonstrate a unique dedication to community service and desire to make a positive impact on the lives around them, but they also show tremendous perseverance as well as the ability to overcome personal struggles and come out victorious against all odds."

To be considered by Allstate and the AFCA for a nomination, each player must be actively involved with a charitable organization or service group while maintaining a strong academic standing. 

Williams has served as a two-year team captain for the Mustangs and is a weekly volunteer at Baltimore's Mount Washington Pediatric Hospital. He has also participated in the Mustangs' annual spring reading program at Mechanicsville Elementary School in Sykesville, Md.. served as a volunteer with Carroll County Special Olympics, and worked as a football instructor for Special Olympics during the 2017 NCAA Convention in Nashville, Tenn.

On campus, Williams is a team representative to the Stevenson Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and is also the vice president of Stevenson's chapter of Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA).

On the field, Williams is a two-time Middle Atlantic Conference First Team selection and the 2016 MAC Offensive Player of the Year and a 2016 D3football.com All-Region selection. He is the program record holder in every passing category and enters his senior season with 55 touchdowns and 6,026 passing yards.  (Thanks to gomustangsports.com for this information and photograph)

Congratulations to Business Communication professor Stephanie Verni, who has launched her fourth book as of July 16, 2018. The Postcard and Other Short Stories & Poems is a collection of the professor's stories, with original poetry samplings as well. Verni has previously self-published three novels,  Beneath the Mimosa Tree, Baseball Girl, and Inn Significant. The department is proud to offer congratulations!

Business Communication seniors Grace Clark (left) and Alyssa Dahle are serving as summer research fellows with Stevenson’s School of Design under Dr. Nadene Vevea, associate dean and chair of communication programs. Their research work will contribute to The Mill, the design center course, in the fall, to be taught by Dr. Vevea and Forest Bell, chair and assistant professor of fashion design and fashion merchandising. The students' projects will aid in the campaign for Baltimore’s 2019 Year of Fashion. Congratulations for the appointment, ladies!

Senior Grace Clark is enjoying her internship at WJZ-TV this summer, as a general newsroom intern who has been learning a variety of jobs.

Most recently she has been working on stories for the CBS Baltimore website,  authoring or contributing to eight pieces so far. Grace notes that the station works on Wordpress, so having similar experience with The Villager has been very helpful.

Grace has also worked on the station's assignment editing desk, sifting through potential stories and deciding what is newsworthy, as well as assisting the editors setting up photographers and reporters for the day.

In the next couple of weeks, Grace will begin working with reporters by going out with them in the field and conducting interviews, a task that interests her greatly.

Internships in the School of Design are supervised by assistant professor Sonya Lawyer.

Congratulations, Grace!
