We just heard from Courtney Hastings (class of 2015), who has spent the time since her graduation serving as the Mar-Del Watermelon Queen, a position that included public relations and promotions for the Mar-Del Watermelon Association. Courtney tells us she has just accepted a new position as a communications specialist with Hertrich, a brand that owns 17 car dealerships in Delmarva. As part of the the marketing department in the corporate office, Courtney will  be working in branding, public relations, video development, and social media. Congratulations, Courtney!

"Goodbyes are sad things. You leave behind dreams that you’ve worked to make real, friends that you’ve suffered to love and sometimes a quiet security that was built with half a lifetime. On the road, you move along and leave your efforts behind you in the dust, knowing deep inside that you will never find them exactly the same again.

Often you spend too much time looking back and miss something up ahead. But there’s little use in trying to avoid the loneliness and anxiety that go with you when you move on… for that is life, and it is a certainty.

The road teaches you to accept goodbyes as a part of saying hello to things that are newer and often better. It also teaches you also that what was loved and what was learned in the past can never be forgotten.

On the road, and in life everywhere, you spend much time learning, wondering and, sometimes, remembering." (from Dreams from the Road)

Congratulations and best of everything to our amazing graduates!

Congratulations to the Business Communication seniors who were part of the stage party at Baccalaureate on Monday, May 16.  Zuryna Smith sang, and Megan Donahue, Lanie Swanhart and Annie McCoach offered reflections.

The Young Alumni Award is presented at Baccalaureate to a graduate from the past 10 years who has achieved extraordinary success while remaining engaged and connected to the University. This year the Young Alumni Award recipient was Lauren Humphries, a Business Communication major from the class of 2008. While attending Villa Julie College, Lauren was an accomplished and active student-athlete. She served as a writer and editor of The Villager, Vice President of the Student Athlete Advisory Council, and a member of Lambda Pi Eta, Sigma Alpha Pi, and Sigma Tau Delta. In October 2015, she was the first person with dwarfism to run the Chicago Marathon. She now works as the Marketing Manager for LUNGevity, the largest national lung cancer-focused nonprofit. The department is enormously proud of the work Lauren has accomplished in her young life. . (Photo from SU Flickr)

The Business Communication department welcomed back three alums for lunch and conversation on Thursday, April 28. Joining the faculty and student guests were Alexis Reid (2009; missing from the photo), Alexa Hiken (2014; second from left), and Frankie Reynolds (2015). They join seniors Lanie Swanhart (left) and Megan Donahue for a photo after lunch.

The "Lunch Lessons" initiative has been enormously successful since its inception in 2012, with 45 alums returning to campus to share their experiences and offer advice. Joining the group from time to time are John "Jamie" Myers and Allison Humphries, from Stevenson's Alumni Office, to meet and greet the returnees.
