BizComm alum Brian Myers has returned from his summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa, as part of his trek with the Livestrong Foundation's "Survivor Summit." This video, created by Roger Gant, chronicles the trip. Brian is the fundraising and events manager for Livestrong, and made the climb in an effort to raise money for cancer victims and their families. He is contributing anything he raises beyond the costs of the summit to the Huntington's Disease Society of America for research to end this deadly and heartbreaking disease that claimed the life of his father. We can still support Brian through his Livestrong site by clicking and contributing here.
Though the weather outside might have been frigid, the BizComm students helping out with the recent "Future Stevenson Scholars Day" Open House were shining like stars! Junior Tyler Turk previewed a video he created for the department, and the students then talked the audience through the Valentine's Day presentation of "The Top 10 Reasons I Love Business Communication." The event included delicious cupcakes and the department's signature brand, the "Candy Bar." Afterwards, the students and faculty all spoke personally with the families in attendance. We are enormously proud of their professionalism and enthusiasm! The students were (back row, l-r): Emily Rosenthal, Megan McSwain, Sarah Cullison, Courtney Hastings, Emma Ragon, Jackie Cooper, Kristen Brooks, Tyler Turk; (front row, l-r): Jamal Williams, Alex Parker, Chloe Redmond, Colleen Shipley and Kaitlin Kirkwood.
