Business Communication alum Kayla Wilson (at center in the photo taken  during her internship) spent the summer working for the Office of the Attorney General and Secretary of State's Office in Maryland, helping to create a new flag protocol for fallen soldiers and assisting with the draft of a ballot question for the coming election. She was excited to meet so many professionals who have a passion for working in public service.

Kayla also traveled to Croatia for three weeks as a part of the Intellectual Property Study Abroad program offered at Michigan State University College of Law, where she is studying.  Kayla writes, "There's a different dynamic among people over there compared to America, and it was very interesting to watch interactions among people and how they communicate with each other and with Americans."

She adds, "My degree in Business Communication remains invaluable. I am so glad that I took interpersonal and intercultural communication. Those classes really helped me communicate with the locals and understand some of their mannerisms and reactions to me."

Kayla is excited to return to school in the fall, for along with her other classes, she is participating in an externship with the National Labor Relations Board in Detroit this fall. Congratulations, Kayla, for such amazing success!

Business Communication grad Michelle Larkin (Stevenson University class of 2014) writes that she has accepted a new job at Disney. Currently an event coordinator at Walt Disney World, Michelle will be joining the Corporate Alliance team "supporting runDisney and all its sponsorship partners. And when there's a race weekend in California in two weeks, what would be the logical first assignment? The Disneyland Half Marathon, of course!" 

According to Disney's website, the Corporate Alliance team works with a variety of companies so that all parties can mutually benefit each other "by using the other companies' abilities and strength." Congratulations, Michelle! Here she is in a photo with Minnie Mouse in Disney World.

BizComm alum Matt Easter (2006) checked in with the department, letting us know of his recent relocation to the Netherlands. He plans on beginning study for a Master's degree, since graduate study in the country is very affordable. Matt's background in marketing, engineering and quality control gives him lots of options. He reports that he has just returned from a fabulous vacation in Croatia and continues to practice his Dutch. Keep in touch with us, Matt! (Photo from Facebook)

Congratulations to two spectacular BizComm athletes who will be inducted in the Dick Watts Stevenson University Athletics Hall of Fame for 2016. GoMustangSports notes the following:

Wade Henninger (2005) was a four-year standout for the men's basketball program from 2001-05 and scored 1,424 points in 95 career games, ranking fourth in career scoring.  He also ranks seventh in career field goal percentage, third in career three-point field goals, first in career three-point percentage, third in career rebounds, fourth in career assists and first in blocked shots.  As a junior he tossed in a program-record 44 points against Salisbury, a mark that stood until 2015.

 

Anthony Fitzgerald (2006) played men's basketball from 2003-06 and led the Mustangs to the first men's basketball NCAA berth in program history as a senior.  He is the program's all-time leader in scoring, field goal percentage, and rebounds, ranking third in Division III history in total rebounds and 10th in rebounds per game.  As a senior he averaged 17.1 points and 14.4 rebounds per game as Villa Julie finished 20-9.  Fitzgerald led the country in rebounding as a junior and senior while ranking second nationally as a sophomore and third as a freshman.

The department of Business Communication salutes these fine athletes. Congrats! (Photos from gomustangsports.com)
