Congratulations to all the Business Communication students and faculty who joined in the effort to raise money for the American Cancer Society via Relay for Life at Stevenson on Friday and Saturday, March 23 and 24. The team, spearheaded by Lambda Pi Eta, the honor society, raised over $1,700 for the cause. Students also designed t-shirts (shown in the photos below) that gave a nod to to faculty members in the department -- professor Christine Noya, who is recovering from cancer after a long year's battle, and Bryan Read, the son of faculty member Chip Rouse. Bryan's battle with colorectal cancer has just begun. The theme this year, Candyland, was reflected in games, prizes, and designs. The team has also been designated as a "Rising Star" team because of their fundraising efforts.

Congratulations to the exceptional inductees of Lambda Pi Eta, the outgoing officers, and the faculty who supported all of them on their journey. The induction ceremony was held on Saturday, March 24, 2018. Inductees included the following students:

  • Grace Harper Clark
  • Alyssa Julianne Dahle
  • Tyler Layne Didra
  • Olivia Ellen Hare
  • Savana Michaela Herndon
  • Joseph Quinn Luethy
  • Maya Stefania Murphy
  • Molly Elizabeth Myers
  • Lauren Novsak
  • Tyler S. Reynolds
  • Mariah L. Williams

Keynote speaker Amanda "Mimi" Bory Tinkler, class of 2009, is the Executive Director of the University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center Foundation, directing all philanthropy and donor relations in the Development area.

Outgoing officers of Lambda Pi Eta include Sarah Cullison (president), Courtney Hottle (vice president), Kaya Roberts (secretary) and Lauren Spivey (social media coordinator). Faculty moderator is Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus.

The Business Communication department's annual fall service project, SOCKTOBER, collected over 200 pairs of socks that were again delivered to the Helping Up Mission, 1029 E. Baltimore Street. The organization of the project was a joint effort between members of  '47 House (the integrated communications club) and Lambda Pi Eta (the honor society of the National Communication Association). Seniors Sarah Cullison and Lauren Spivey, officers of Lambda Pi Eta, trekked to the mission for delivery of the socks in early December.

Helping Up Mission serves over 500 men a day in the Baltimore area, and the socks arrived just in time for the colder weather. Socks may appear insignificant, but feet are subject to the most wear and tear on the human body so they need protection, especially from the cold and from foot diseases. Thanks, Stevenson community, for your generosity!
