Business Communication News
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:
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!
