Photos from ECA 2019 convention

Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus and professor Chip Rouse, of Stevenson's department of Business Communication, recently attended the Eastern Communication Association convention in Providence, R.I., with four seniors in the major.

Dr. Bell McManus finished up her term as president of the organization, and was also awarded a Teaching Fellows award during the conference. The students -- Paul Farrell, Quinn Luethy, Molly Myers and Mariah Williams -- volunteered as ambassadors during the convention and also appeared on a panel with students from several other universities discussing their work with Lambda Pi Eta, the honor society of the National Communication Association.

Dr. Bell McManus and Chip Rouse appeared on a panel together discussing a variety of creative learning strategies outside of standard communication classes.

Ashley MilTaking a risk:

Writes SU Business Communication grad Ashley Mil: I left my corporate job in PR to pursue my passions in fitness, yoga, blogging and all things wellness! I had the opportunity in my career to make a decision; either stick to the path I was already on or take a huge risk and create the life I’ve been dreaming of ... I found myself dreading going to work and itching to get out of my 9-5 desk job any chance I got... I finally decided I want more than that and I won’t settle! I know that I can create the life I truly want to live and I am taking things into my own hands instead of someone else’s! Cheers to new beginnings, new challenges, all the change and a life worth living. 

Best of luck to you, Ashley, as you pursue your dreams! (Photo from Facebook)

Business Communication students, faculty and alums participated in Relay for Life on Friday, March 30, extending the event until 3 a.m. Sunday morning. Teams walk laps around the gym and raise money for the American Cancer Society. In the photos above, the Business Communication team, #TeamChrisNoya, gathered for a group photo early in the evening. The team was walking in remembrance of longtime faculty member and assistant professor, Chris Noya, who passed away earlier in March after a long fight against cancer. Thanks to Leeanne Bell McManus for some of the photos.
