We've heard from some of our December grads regarding their newly chosen career paths. Here's a quick check-in:

Emma Ragon has accepted a job as a marketing assistant with the Whiting-Turner Contracting Co. According to its website, "Whiting-Turner was founded in 1909 on the belief that integrity, engineering talent, and a dedication to our customers would make us the very best in the industry." Emma is shown on the right in the photo during one of her internships, this one with the Business Communication department.

 

Savannah Lawrence Tagget, who was married soon after graduation, has accepted a job as a marketing and public relations writer for Pivot Communication in Boulder, Colorado. Pivot Communication "creates integrated branding and marketing strategies" relying on their skills in research, branding, graphic and web design, public relations, social media, email marketing and advertising. Savannah is shown here during her internship at Bancroft Press.
 

Taylor Cunha is working at Aerotek as a recruiter. Aerotek is one of the top global recruiting and staffing agencies. Begun in 1983 to serve the aerospace and defense industries, Aerotek has grown to include nearly every industry. In the photo, Taylor is shown on the left during her internship at Route One Apparel.

 

Kaitlyn Rollyson is working as the events manager at Black Ankle Vineyards in Mt. Airy, Md.  The relatively new company's first harvest was in 2006. As an estate winery, the company is also committed to sustainability. In the photo, Kaitlyn is shown on the right during her internship at Grow & Fortify, during which she learned a lot about the wine industry.

 


Emily Soller continues her interests in sports as the assistant softball coach at Harford Community College, where she interned with the department of athletics. Emily has also been coaching basketball at John Carroll School. In the photo, she is shown at center during her internship stint at HCC.

BizComms Corrin Harris, Lauren Novsak, and alum Emma Ragon have been working hard in January as they traveled with a Stevenson crew to New Orleans with Mission:I'm Home as a part of the rebuilding effort after Hurricane Katrina. Their work was hands on as they used their carpentry talents to repair and update a home in the St. Bernard Parish. Thanks and congratulations to the 25 Stevenson students and staff who made this effort possible! (Photo from Emma Ragon)

Congratulations to the December 2016 Business Communication graduates -  all 18 of them! They gathered for the traditional pre-Commencement photograph with their faculty members on Dec. 19, 2016. A special kudos goes out to Emma Ragon, who was awarded the Orsia F. Young Leadership Award, and to Emily Rosenthal, who won the President's Award for Scholarly and Creative Achievement. Good luck as you all move on, and stay in touch! (Photo courtesy of Stephanie Verni)

A group of six Business Communication students volunteered to help face paint at this year's alumni "Breakfast with Santa" on Saturday, Dec. 10.  A sold-out crowd was on hand to enjoy breakfast, games, reading time, a visit from Santa Claus, and, of course, holiday face painting. A big thanks to Naseehaa Bacchus, Carlyn Bessicks, Brianna Buttner, DeJonna Farrar, Maya Murphy and Steve Thomas, who gave up their Saturday morning at the request of faculty member Chip Rouse, who has worked on the event with the alumni office in the past. Joining the group on stage is Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, who attended the event with her family.

The Business Communication department just heard from one of our alums, Kayla Wilson ('12), who is studying law at Michigan State University. She tells us that this semester she has been splitting her time between the National Labor Relations Board and Legal Services of South Central Michigan (Michigan's Legal Aid program).

"Working at both locations has given me exposure to two different legal offices, and because of that I've been able to gauge what I want in a legal career," she writes. 

Congratulations, Kayla, and we know you look forward to getting that degree!
