A great big thank you to several of our Business Communication students and faculty members who volunteered to help with the Alumni Office's annual Breakfast with Santa event. Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus and Professor Chip Rouse invited students to serve as elves for the morning, helping with face painting and arts & crafts for the guests. The students, including Lauren Novsak, who took a leadership role in the event planning, were happy to step up with their faculty for an exciting Saturday morning. They included Grace Clark, Alyssa Dahle, Paul Farrell, Christine Favata, Zaria Greene, Olivia Hare, Hannah Krasinski,  Alyssa Maher, Maya Murphy, and Leah Wittler. Alums Tara Shismanian and Nick Farano were helping out as well, and BizComm visitors included Ashley Kline Bartkowiak and family, and Michele Giannini Price and family.

What a surprise to see this LinkedIn photo of two outstanding Business Communication graduates -- Ali Winer and Bridget Forney Deise -- together attending the Baltimore Public Relations Council’s “Morning With The Baltimore Sun” event on Monday, Nov. 26. Both of these public relations professionals work at Profiles, a Baltimore-area PR, marketing, communications, and events firm. The event was held at Spark Baltimore. 

Business Communication alum Brendan Reynolds (second from the right in the photo of his colleagues) has just made a career change at WDVM-TV in Hagerstown, Maryland, moving from web producer to reporter. Brendan was an editor-in-chief of The Villager while he was a student at Stevenson.

He writes, "I just finished my first week as a full time reporter! First and foremost, I want to get better at shooting footage and editing my stories. I want to be creative, but I also have the time constraint of my deadline. My coworker said, “make air not art.” However, the artist in me is having issues...with that.

I was pressed for time the other day when I had to finish one of my stories as well as prepare for my two live shots. Despite the stressfulness of the situation, it honestly felt exhilarating to rush between writing, editing and running outside for my hit time."

Congratulations, Brendan! You've got this! (Photo from Facebook)

One Business Communication alum and a current BizComm senior both recently participated in the Baltimore Facebook Community Boost as members of the Profiles PR team. This initiative, with Facebook committing to provide 1 million U.S. workers and entrepreneurs the digital skills they need to compete in today's economy, gave alum Ali Winer (right, in the photo) and senior Grace Clark (left, in the photo) the chance to help deliver digital training to those in Baltimore seeking a career edge. Profiles PR is a marketing,  communications, and events firm based in Baltimore, with a national reputation for crafting and implementing programs that deliver measurable results for clients, according to their website.

How exciting for Business Communication alum Lauren Shapiro Mittleman and husband Matthew  -- they will be on national television on the DIY Network’s show "First Time Flippers"! The show will air on Saturday, December 8 at 9 p.m. (Photos from Facebook)

On its website, "First Time Flippers" notes, "Can two First Time Flippers turn a disaster house into a dream home? We chronicle the highs and lows of renovation as homeowners take on their very first flip. Will they make a profit? Or break the bank?"

Lauren and Matthew have been in the news recently, drawing the attention of the local Beth El congregation for their creation of a new line of travel-worthy baby cups, "CollapseAndGo." Interested readers can find out more about that project here.
