The under-13 Baltimore Crabs made their way to the Warrior World Series of Lacrosse in Denver, Colorado, coached by SU alum Brad Bartkowiak, husband of BizComm alum Ashley Kline. The Crabs were 5-0 when they faced the Long Island Team 91 in the finals at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium. Congratulations to the young Baltimore Crabs and their coach, a former Stevenson University lacrosse player!

A hearty congratulations to Bridget Forney Deise, SU Business Communication graduate (class of 2008)  and award recipient of the 2015 Daily Record's "20 in their 20s." Bridget is currently the Public Relations Manager at Roland Park Place, a full-service, accredited nonprofit continuing care retirement community in Baltimore.

The Daily Record created this award "to recognize young professionals whose creativity and entrepreneurial spirit are contributing to a new energy in Maryland. Winners were selected on the basis of their professional accomplishments, community involvement and the impact of their achievements. The program celebrates the best and brightest under 30 who may have not earned their first million but whose creativity and spirit are already making significant contributions to the state," according to the Daily Record's website. Past honorees select the new year's award recipients.

The Daily Record sees this new generation of leaders as "highly motivated, socially conscious and expert multitaskers who incorporate technology and community building into all aspects of their lives." (Photo courtesy of Bridget F. Deise)

BricknFire Pizza Co., established in 2014 by SU BizComm alum Megan Lanasa and Trey Kirby, is the winner of a regional competition for restaurant concepts held by the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards. BricknFire is a mobile brick-oven pizza operation housed at The Breadery, a bake shop owned by Megan's parents, and which often appears at area farmers' markets and special events.

As a result of the win, this fall, BricknFire will have a home inside the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards. According to a press release, "BricknFire was chosen by a committee of local restaurateurs, hotel owners, industry experts and food lovers. Marriott will work with BricknFire to suitably equip and build the space (up to a $50,000 investment), and lease terms will be negotiated after six months if the concept proves successful."  Here's a photo of Megan from her days as a Business Communication intern. Congratulations, Megan!

Looks like graduate school is the choice of several BizComms for the fall. Amy Sharfman will be among the initial cohort at Stevenson University's Master's program in Communication Studies that will begin this fall. Meanwhile, Amy is working this summer for Conference & Logistics Consultants, Inc. in the event management business. 

2015 alum Alex Parker will be attending Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., full time this fall for her master's degree in Sports Industry Management. Alex's internships with the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Wizards propelled her to the program at Georgetown.


Jess Barley, a May 2015 alum, has been accepted at Towson University for their Master's program in Applied Gerontology. Jess interned at several Brightview Senior Living facilities and was attracted to the career field. She hopes to combine her interest in events with gerontology studies.
