Congratulations to Business Communication students Emma Cathy Smith and Paul Farrell, and visual communication design major Heather J. Sun (left to right in the first photo), who presented their research at the 2018 Maryland Communication Association conference at Howard University on September 15, 2018. Their panel was titled "We Have Watched and Listened from the Mountain! An Analysis of Black Panther." Their mentors and faculty facilitators, Dr. Deric Greene and Dr. Heather Harris of the Business Communication department, attended the conference with them. Pictured together are all the Stevenson attendees: Dr. Harris, Dr. Lee Krahenbuhl, the three students, Dr. Greene, and Dr. Nadene Vevea.

Dr. Krahenbuhl's presentation was titled "Matter and Impertinency Mixt: The Boots of Maryland's Promethian Actor Junius Brutus Booth (1796-1852) as Historiographical Relics of Interpersonal Communication." Throughout the day, there were also sessions from scholars at Howard University, College of Southern Maryland, Bowie State University, and Maryland University of Integrative Health.  The keynote speaker was Dr. Ronald L. Jackson II, from the University of Cincinnati.

Congratulations to Business Communication alum Mackenzie Wieder, who finished her thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail on Monday, Sept. 10, 2018.

She wrote: "In the span of 173 days on the Appalachian Trail, I got a hitch from an Amish guy in his horse and buggy, I watched the sunrise from McAfee Knob and Clingmans Dome, I hiked into town to buy an entire cake and eat it on the sidewalk with my friends, I hiked 42 miles in one day, I saw Spongebob on Broadway, I created a makeshift splint and waited for emergency responders for a hiker who broke his ankle, I swam in every lake I could, and I experienced magic from strangers. On Monday, I finished my 2,190.9 mile journey.

In the photo at left from her Facebook account, Mackenzie sits atop Mt. Katahdin, the highest mountain in Maine at 5,267 feet, located in Baxter State Park. Mackenzie's mantra for the hike was "accept the unexpected."

Welcome home, Mackenzie!
