Communication News

Rising senior Lanie Swanhart competed  for Stevenson in the Outdoor Track and Field MAC Championships at Messiah College May 1-2 where she ran the new school record 2:23.26 for the 800 meter run, finishing in 4th place in the conference. Congratulations, Lanie! (Photo courtesy of Lanie Swanhart)

BizComm junior goalie Connor Skeen was named the game's MVP after Stevenson's men's lacrosse team was victorious over Messiah College in the MAC Commonwealth Conference championship game, 8-4. Skeen's 10 saves made the difference in the match, helped out by junior BizComm Pat Candon, who scored back-to-back goals just 38 seconds apart to give the Mustangs the lead at halftime, and Stevenson never looked back after that. Now, it's on to the NCAAs for the Mustangs!

It was a wonderful trip to Philadelphia for some BizComm students and faculty for the annual Eastern Communication Association convention, where they presented research material on panels, served as panel chairs, responded to student and faculty papers, attended sessions, met other students and colleagues, and planned for the 2016 convention to be held in Baltimore. In the photos above, senior Courtney Hastings (far left on the panel) spoke on a Lambda Pi Eta panel about Stevenson University's chapter; the four student attendees -- Lanie Swanhart, Megan McSwain, Peighton Perrone, and Courtney Hastings -- take a minute at the Undergraduate Scholars Conference luncheon to pose together; Courtney Hastings with Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, Stevenson's Lambda Pi Eta moderator; and finally all the SU attendees, left to right: junior Megan McSwain, Associate Professor Stephanie Verni, Associate Professor Deric Greene, senior Courtney Hastings, Associate Professor Leeanne Bell McManus, senior Peighton Perrone, junior Lanie Swanhart, and Associate Professor Chip Rouse.

BizComm alum Kayla Wilson (center in the photo) reached out to let us know she will be entering law school at Michigan State University in the fall, having applied to and been accepted at all six of her choices! While she was a student here, Kayla intered at the Career Offices at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law, under the mentorship of Dana Morris, Assistant Dean (on the right) and Rita Jones, Career Development Associate. Kayla’s interest in the law continued to grow,  culminating in this wonderful career choice! Congratulations, Kayla!

Senior Kelsey Spriggs (in the photo on the right) will not have to travel far from her beloved Greensprng campus when she begins her job after graduation at Gramercy Mansion just around the corner on Greenspring Valley Road. Having interned at the site, she was so pleased when her site supervisor, Jennifer Sullivan (a former BizComm hersefl!) offered her a full-time position in marketing and communications at the bed and breakfast/event site/conference center. Congratulations, Kelsey!
