Professor Stephanie Verni's latest short story work-in-progress was just picked up by Paperblog, "a participatory media site that helps readers find quality articles from all over the blogosphere. There, talented experts and enthusiasts can share their knowledge and experience" with readers. Congratulations, Professor Verni, and keep writing!

Congratulations to Stevenson Business Communication alum Adrianna Kamosa for her well-written and insightful blog post, "What I learned from being a competitive athlete," published on her blog, Morning Muses. Adrianna's participation with her sisters in four sports through her lifetime has taught her significant life lessons, including how to anticipate the good and bad in life. Thanks, Adrianna, for sharing these thoughts.

Business Communication major Bri Buttner used her LinkedIn space to celebrate her competitive Enactus spirit. "Today has been excellent! Enactus regionals competition supporting Stevenson University and the Success Closet!" she wrote. Enactus is "a community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better more sustainable world," according to its website.

We just heard from alum Kayla Wilson ('12), who's counting the days until her law school commencement. Kayla will graduate from Michigan State School of Law in May.

She writes, "I hope you and all of the BizComm professors are well. I am working at Legal Aid in Michigan, but I also spent last semester teaching high school journalism students about the First Amendment as a student in one of the clinics Michigan State offers. It was a really good experience for me and I enjoyed teaching. The students had a lot of questions about speech specifically, because of their interest in social media."

Love to hear that our alums are thriving in such a wide variety of fields!
