Communication News

A hearty congratulations goes out to Business Communication alum Brittany Bangert (class of 2010) whose first run at the Boston Marathon was a successful, if soggy, one. 

She writes, "I don’t think anyone’s training could have really prepared for those conditions but it was definitely the greatest gut and grit test I’ve ever had... Crossing that line was so gratifying, it’s hard to describe, but the worst was by far the three hours of shivering after. Never been so grateful for a hot shower, warm blanket and hot chocolate. So many of you have reached out - and thanks for that, it means the world and I thought of all of you throughout."

So proud of you, Brittany! She's the one with the orange hat jumping puddles. (Photo from Facebook)

Junior Business Communication major Christine Favata (on the right in the photo) writes that she and her peers had a great time representing Stevenson University as a client of Rails to Trails Conservancy and the Baltimore Greenway Trails Network on Saturday, April 7. The two networks were clients of The Mill, SU's School of Design center for integrated marketing communication. The students were joined at the launch by Business Communication faculty member professor Stephanie Verni, and this semester's Mill class was led by Inna Alesina, assistant professor of art.

The faculty in the department of Business Communication welcomed students who have been accepted into the university for the 2018-19 academic year with an exciting game of Kahoot! played together on Saturday, April 7. Students and their parents were challenged to identify a variety of brands using an app on their mobile phones, and then the students talked about developing their own personal brand. Department chair and associate dean Nadene Vevea kept the scene lively and engaging.

Congratulations to Business Communication alumna Amanda "Mimi" Bory Tinkler, class of 2009, on her promotion to the Executive Director at University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center Foundation. Since 2011, Mimi has supported major hospital initiatives with philanthropic funding at UM SJMC for projects including renovations of operating rooms, hospital wings and the Perinatal Center; the nursery, medical library and infusion center, and more, according to the Daily Record. She is the youngest executive director in the University of Maryland system.

Prior to being named executive director, Mimi served as the director of Communications and Philanthropy Services for the UM SJMC Foundation and manager of donor relations.

Mimi was a five-time Carson's Scholar Award Winner, a Maryland Distinguished Scholar, and a Spirit of Women National Award Winner, recognized on “The Today Show."

While at Stevenson University, Mimi served as editor-in-chief of The Villager; president of MAP; public relations director of the sophomore and senior councils; enjoyed membership in three honor societies; and completed three internships. She received Stevenson's Young Alumni Award and was the keynote speaker for the 2018 Lambda Pi Eta induction ceremony.

Mimi has been back several times to the university and the department to help Business Communication students with advice and example.

Congratulations, Mimi!
