Congratulations to the newest class of Lambda Pi Eta inductees. This 2016 group held their induction ceremony on April 23 as the officers swore in 29 new members and handed out honor cords and pins in front of their families, friends and faculty. Dean Amanda Hostalka welcomed the attendees, and Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, moderator of the organization, opened the ceremony before turning it over to the officers, who explained the history and mission of the organization that serves as the honor society of the National Communication Association.

Author Jack Gilden, of Jack Gilden Marketing, was the keynote speaker and was introduced by his intern and new inductee Kelsey Marden. The outgoing officers included Lanie Swanhart, Chloe Redmond, Erin Schapiro and Megan Donahue. Congratulations to all the LPH members.

Congratulations to BizComm senior Shane Messick, who was recently awarded the Matt and Wendy McDermott American Advertising Federation Scholarship. The scholarship is one of four awarded yearly by the American Advertising Federation of Baltimore.

Shane is currently interning at Royal Farms Arena and has in the past completed an internship at Gaga Marketing (shown seated with his Gaga colleagues in the photo at left). His interests are in the field of entertainment advertising and public relations.

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.
