Congratulations to the many BizComms who participated in Stevenson's annual Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society. Students in Lambda Pi Eta anchored the delegation, but students in the major also participated on teams from the SGA, Wild Stang Radio, Phi Sigma Sigma, MAP, and lots of other teams. Professor Stephanie Verni was a good sport when she was "jailed," and Sydney Rebechi and Allie Nelson paused in their laps for a cute duet. Thanks to all who turned out for the terrific event!
