The annual Alumni Bull Roast at Stevenson attracted a number of Business Communication alums, including Lori Elgert Fabiano, Lauren Humphries, and Tonia Cristino, shown here riding the mechanical bull during the event.

The evening featured a buffet catered by Sodexo including crab soup and pit beef and turkey, a silent auction, a wine tasting, a live band, and games of chance.

Congratulations to Business communication alum Shane Messick, who followed his dream to Hollywood and has been accepted in the 2017 class of employee pages at Paramount Pictures. Here he is in front of Paramount's Bronson Gate in his official page uniform. The page program seeks to offer hands-on experience for those who want to work in the entertainment business. According to Paramount's website, "the Page Program acts as a stepping stone into a multitude of careers on the business end of the entertainment industry. The primary responsibility of a Paramount Page for the first six months of the program is to serve as a brand ambassador and provide professional studio tours to paying guests as well as studio executives." Way to go, Shane!

December alum Savannah (Lawrence) Tagget wrote a wonderful message to the department on the occasion of accepting a full-time position with Pivot Communication.

"After working part time for a month, they asked me to come on full time. They were impressed with my writing skills and ability to listen to what a client wants and deliver it the first time. If it weren't for all the AP style tests and practice using AP style in writing classes, my writing wouldn't shine -- thank you for teaching me such a valuable skill in the writing world. Professor Verni helped me discover my writing voice, too, which is why my boss has told me that he 'likes how I approach topics.'

Some of my job duties involve writing newsletters and blog posts, interviewing individuals for articles, managing clients' social media pages, and distributing event and news releases to press. Every day I see how skills I learned both at Stevenson and at my internships apply to my new job. I'm working with senior living, criminal justice and legal clients -- I love the diversity in topics. Yesterday I wrote a blog post on preliminary injunctions for a legal client, and I was shocked at how interesting it was to research and write about!

I would encourage the current interns to soak up all they can this semester. Without my internships, the learning curve for this job would be difficult to master. Also, one of the only reasons I was able to secure this job while still living back in Maryland was because of my experience. I was also told that I was well-spoken and confident -- traits that the Business Communication program instilled in me ...
I'm truly astounded how apparent the transfer of skills from Stevenson is. "

Thank you, Savannah, for those encouraging words!

Business Communication alum Julia Tucker checked in recently to let us know she has accepted a full-time job offer as a Digital Media Coordinator for Mid-Atlantic Media in Owings Mills. Julia writes, "I am thrilled for this opportunity, and I look forward to all that it has to offer. I greatly appreciate the support and guidance ... given to me over the years." Congratulations, Julia -- what a great opportunity for you!
