In the photo, Brianna ("Bri") Buttner is busy checking the credentials of all attendees of the Washington Automotive Press Association (WAPA) Rally and Awards ceremony Oct. 20, 2017. Her internship with Business Communication alum Amanda Calcado at Event Solutions International gave Bri access to the rally, luncheon and awards ceremonies. Event Solutions International schedules many test drives of new and specialty automobiles so that journalists can evaluate them.

"I can't believe I got to meet automotive journalists whose articles and blogs I have been reading for years," said Bri. "It was such an exciting experience and I felt like I really contributed to the event management."

Members of the Business Communication department enjoyed a brilliantly beautiful Homecoming day 2017 on Saturday, Oct. 21. Lots of alumni returned to reunite with each other, and a victory for the football team capped the day!

The department of Business Communication is thrilled to congratulate three of our alums who were honored at the 2017 induction ceremony for the Dick Watts Athletics Hall of Fame.

Jessica Bensley, '06, was an outstanding volleyball, basketball and softball player during her time at Stevenson. Brad Friedel, '00, was an MVP of the men's tennis team as a senior and came back to serve as a coach from 2001-2004. Brett Mitchell, representing the men's golf "Team of Tradition" of 2006-07, was on the Stevenson team that was the first to qualify for the NCAA Division III men's golf championship.

The event was help on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017. Congratulations to all the student-athletes who were honored during the event.

Business Communication senior Abigail Provost interned during the summer of 2017 at Discovery Communications, where she participated in a contest to redesign the logo that would be used to represent the internship program there. Collaborating with a colleague in the print center at Discovery, Abbey created the award-winning design shown here, among others. It will be featured on all Discovery internship materials in the future. "I felt it was a great use of my VCD classes as well as what I learned in my Advertising and PR classes," said Abbey. Congratulations, Abbey, for your terrific creation. Your department is so proud of you!

Congratulations to Business Communication senior Kali Martin, who was asked to chronicle her field hockey team's year for the Huffington Post. She wrote about her coach (and mother's) 2016 battle with breast cancer here, as well as the team's role in supporting and encouraging their coach and each other. Her story reflects on what is possible when a group of players refuse to give in to hardship and defeat. Read Kali's article here.
