In the photo, Brianna ("Bri") Buttner is busy checking the credentials of all attendees of the Washington Automotive Press Association (WAPA) Rally and Awards ceremony Oct. 20, 2017. Her internship with Business Communication alum Amanda Calcado at Event Solutions International gave Bri access to the rally, luncheon and awards ceremonies. Event Solutions International schedules many test drives of new and specialty automobiles so that journalists can evaluate them.
"I can't believe I got to meet automotive journalists whose articles and blogs I have been reading for years," said Bri. "It was such an exciting experience and I felt like I really contributed to the event management."
Business Communication senior Abigail Provost interned during the summer of 2017 at Discovery Communications, where she participated in a contest to redesign the logo that would be used to represent the internship program there. Collaborating with a colleague in the print center at Discovery, Abbey created the award-winning design shown here, among others. It will be featured on all Discovery internship materials in the future. "I felt it was a great use of my VCD classes as well as what I learned in my Advertising and PR classes," said Abbey. Congratulations, Abbey, for your terrific creation. Your department is so proud of you!
