Communication News

First-year, transfer and honor society students from the Business Communication department joined other First-Year Seminar classes and clubs during "Mustangs Make a Difference Day" on Friday, Oct. 12, in the Garrison Quad. The Business Communication students and faculty members were raising money for cancer research through the sale of hugs and other goodies.

Service is a key component of The Stevenson Way, and the participating students enjoyed getting to meet others in their major while making a difference.

Pictured to the left in the first two photos are some of the students who participated in the event, and the bottom photo shows the organizing team who put together the yearly event, including two BizComms, Caroline Izzi and Lauren Novsak.

Business Communication professors Stephanie Verni and Chip Rouse attended "Unscripted," a book talk by noted author and journalist Mitch Albom, at Towson University on Oct. 10, 2018. The event, sponsored by the Baltimore Sun Media Group, drew a sold-out crowd, and who should greet the faculty members as they arrived other than BizComm alum Alaina Maracotta, who is one of the event planners for the Baltimore Sun. The two professors not only got to spend some time catching up with Alaina, but also received a signed copy of Albom's new book, "The Next Person You Meet in Heaven," a sequel to his best-seller, "The Five People You Meet in Heaven."

Business Communication alumni Anthony Fitzgerald and Chris Warren joined some of their teammates Oct. 7 at the SU football game for a photo and reunion. Brought together by their former coach, Stevenson's AD Brett Adams, the group reconnected with Business Communication professor Chip Rouse as well.

Fitzgerald works for the federal government at Social Security and coaches high school basketball at Poly, and Warren works on the creative side for UnderArmour.

Business Communication graduate Kait Kirkwood tells us that she recently accepted a full-time position at Discovery Inc. as the Global Talent Management and Operations Coordinator. She will be moving to the company's new operations headquarters in Knoxville, TN., to support the team that manages all of Discovery's on-air talent.

Kait writes to the department, "Being a BizCom major really prepared me to take on a role such as this one, where I will be completing a large variety of tasks. My position includes corporate gifting, talent & producer operations, financial work, social media analytics, and project coordination. Thank you all for your help and support --it has meant the world to me... I would not be able to say I have my dream job at 23 if it weren't for you!"

Kait will mentor network on-camera Talent, troubleshoot Talent issues, and focus on the business of Talent branding. She will also facilitate communications, operations, and logistics across many projects for global on-camera Talent. It's a big job but we know that Kait is up to it!
