Congratulations to Business Communication students Emma Cathy Smith and Paul Farrell, and visual communication design major Heather J. Sun (left to right in the first photo), who presented their research at the 2018 Maryland Communication Association conference at Howard University on September 15, 2018. Their panel was titled "We Have Watched and Listened from the Mountain! An Analysis of Black Panther." Their mentors and faculty facilitators, Dr. Deric Greene and Dr. Heather Harris of the Business Communication department, attended the conference with them. Pictured together are all the Stevenson attendees: Dr. Harris, Dr. Lee Krahenbuhl, the three students, Dr. Greene, and Dr. Nadene Vevea.

Dr. Krahenbuhl's presentation was titled "Matter and Impertinency Mixt: The Boots of Maryland's Promethian Actor Junius Brutus Booth (1796-1852) as Historiographical Relics of Interpersonal Communication." Throughout the day, there were also sessions from scholars at Howard University, College of Southern Maryland, Bowie State University, and Maryland University of Integrative Health.  The keynote speaker was Dr. Ronald L. Jackson II, from the University of Cincinnati.

A wonderful retirement party to celebrate the end of a career at Stevenson University for assistant professor Christine Noya was the highlight of Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018. Former faculty and staff, as well as many alums, came back to say farewell, and many current faculty, staff and friends were on hand to enjoy the festivities. Dr. Elliot Hirshman presented Professor Noya with a parting gift along with some words of congratulations and celebration, and Susan Gorman, Ph.D. and provost, thanked Chris for her 33 years of service. Amanda Hostalka, dean of the school of Design, and Nadene Vevea, associate dean and chair of communication programs, also expressed their gratitude for Chris' many contributions to the department and the university. Faculty members Chris Roberts, Alex Hooke, Chip Rouse, Laurel Moody and Alexander Boulton shared some insights about Chris' years at Villa Julie College/Stevenson University, and her family was well represented during the party. Congratulations, Chris. We will all miss you! (Photos from SU Flickr)
