Adrianna Kamosa's muralBusiness Communication alum Adrianna Kamosa (Stevenson University class of 2017), the marketing manager at Bien Mérité, a bakery in Corpus Christi, Texas, has created a magnificent mural for the establishment. Adrianna explained that the mural is inspired by the bakery and the rolling hills of lavender in the French countryside. It is her first large-scale mural, though she has been painting for a long while.

Adrianna's work even made the news with a feature in the Corpus Christi Caller Times. " 'I really wanted to picture what Bien Mérité would look like if it were located in a small French town,' said artist Adrianna Kamosa of Adrianna Paints. 'Now people can enjoy French pastries and take pictures in front of this hidden gem near the cafe.' "

Congratulations, Adrianna! Such talent! (Photo from Facebook)

Cover of the second edition of event planning textCongratulations to Business Communication professors Leeanne Bell McManus, Chip Rouse, and Stephanie Verni on the publication of the second edition of the event planning textbook, Event Planning: Communicating Theory & Practice.

According to Kendall Hunt Publishing, this second edition "offers a unique approach that connects concepts in communication to practical event planning ideas. Understanding the 'why' behind successful events is fundamental to creating unique and successful experiences for companies, organizations, or clients. With a solid basis in communication theory, along with two new chapters that cover best practices in hospitality and event tourism, this text will enable students to manage each aspect of the planning cycle. Exemplary case studies from experts in the field, combined with thought-provoking activities and insightful text, will help students understand what it takes to succeed in a career as an event planner." New chapters on hospitality and mega events address even more current trends.

Cover of Dr. Heather Harris' nookCongratulation to Dr. Heather Harris, professor of  Communication at Stevenson University, on the publication of her second edited book.

Amazon writes, "The FLOTUS Effect emphasizes the import of agency on the part of Michelle Obama in relation to her politics as evidenced in her positionality and presence as the first African American woman to serve as First Lady of the United States of America. Her occupation of a previously white space and place tended to frame her as an enigma in the American mind and media. Contributors reflect on Mrs. Obama’s eight years in her ceremonial position, and the ways she chose to uniquely embody her role. Hence, the result is a volume that speculates upon her evolving legacy, and the likely 'effects' of what it meant to be the first African-American woman to serve in the ceremonial, yet powerful, role of FLOTUS."

With collaborator Kimberly R. Moffitt of UMBC, Harris examines the topics of race, gender, representation, politics, and communication in this edited volume.

Congratulations to these talented professors!
