Team Baltimore arriving back home

Congratulations to SU Business Communication graduate (class of 2019) Tyler Didra, who completed the 4K for Cancer run across America this summer to raise money for cancer research through the Ulman 4K for Cancer initiative. Tyler is seated, second from the right in the photo from Facebook. The team departed from the West coast on June 17, and made it back to Baltimore's Federal Hill on August 3, 2019, running over 4,000 team miles in the journey. Read more about Tyler's journey here.

Claudia Tonti, colleagues and Carol Burnett

Class of 2019 Business Communication grad Claudia Tonti knew that her new job as the marketing and public relations coordinator at the Modell Lyric in Baltimore, Maryland, would bring her together with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. However, when television star Carol Burnett appeared at the venue, Claudia was even more thrilled. Here she is with some of her Modell Lyric colleagues, and the superstar is front and center!

Rollins CollegeBusiness Communication alum Michelle Larkin writes to us, "About a month ago, I started as the Associate Director of Integrated Marketing for Rollins College, here in Winter Park, FL. I lead the marketing efforts for our Admissions team, and serve as the liaison between Admissions and Marketing (that's where the "integrated" part comes in!).  My career has really done a full circle, since this role is incredibly similar to the work I did as an intern in Stevenson's Admissions office. Rollins reminds me a lot of Stevenson, and I feel very at home already. 

Michelle leaves her job at the Mango Board as a marketing specialist to move to Rollins College. The department of Business Communication at Stevenson is happy for Michelle in this new career.
