Business Communication alum Mark Salerno (at left in his internship photograph) reached out to the department recently in a lengthy email. We excerpt some of it here:

Happy New Year!  Can you believe its been three years since I graduated? I catch myself thinking, "If only my biggest concern today was getting to Chip's 8 a.m. class! Ahh, those were the good ole days." I'm sure it's all a blur for you. Honestly, everyday I reference something I learned from the program, constantly thanking of you all in my head!  I've been working for my parents' company, Integrated Control Corporation, since I graduated. It has been an interesting transition working for them. We design and manufacture electronics for the food service industry, mostly pertaining to quality and food safety. I've been taking over most of the customers and being the face of the sales team....
 
 
And we recently heard as well from Inna Kolomiytsev, who is the director of Marketing for Niles, Barton, and Wilmer, LLP (she's shown here far left with some students at a "Lunch Lessons" event):
 
Happy New Year to you, and I hope this finds you well! I am reaching out to my alma mater to share a possible internship opportunity for a student who would be interested in working with a local non-profit Gunpowder Valley Conservancy, a unique land preservation and environmental education organization that serves the Baltimore County, Harford County and Carroll County region covering a major watershed that is a part of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. I have become recently involved as an advisor in assisting GVC’s Executive Director in rewriting content for the website which is in the process of a design revamp. We are in need of fresh photography, infographics to add to side-bars, and assistance with generally maintaining the content once it goes live.
 
How great it is to hear from our alums who are thriving, happy, and successful!

Kristen Schultz, the Baltimore Orioles Director of Community Relations and Promotions, was a guest speaker in business communication professor Stephanie Verni's Sports Communication class Nov. 18.  She brought lots of swag for the students and talked at length about the Orioles' approach to promotions, even answering questions about the recent Buck Showalter garden gnome promotion. Thanks to Professor Verni's past career with the Orioles, the class has been fortunate to have a tremendous line-up of guest speakers from the world of sports communication. The class posed for a photo with the speaker after the presentation was finished....Click here to read more.

Students in the department of Business Communication were busy at the university's Welcome Picnic on Wednesday, Aug. 26, staffing tables for various clubs and organizations, and using their communication skills to reach out to those who had questions about joining in.  Even our alums (employed at the university, of course) were happy to chat with passers-by!

Congratulations to Enrique (Ricky) Sanchez '98 and Andy Welling '03, two BizComm alums who will be inducted in the second class of the Stevenson University Athletics Hall of Fame, along with five other alumni.

According to Gomustangsports, Ricky was a two-sport athlete, playing men’s soccer and men’s lacrosse. The men’s lacrosse team annually awards the Ricky Sanchez Best Midfielder Award. In soccer, he was a two-year team captain and most valuable player. After he graduated, he stayed on to serve as an admissions counselor, an assistant coach, and the sports information director. In the photo (at center) he is shown at a recent golf outing with soccer coaches Graeme Millar and John Plevyak.

 

Andy played four seasons for the baseball team, the first baseball student-athlete to play four years after playing in 29 games during the team’s inaugural season in 2000. He was a two-time American Baseball Coaches Association All-Region selection and two-time team most valuable player as a junior and senior. He is still ranked among the top-10 in school history in 14 categories, including the record for RBIs with 124.

Congratulations to all of the inductees!
