Senior Desijana Cook (in the photo on the left) graduated from Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Baltimore four years ago, but never envisioned that she would be back there as an intern in her senior year of college. Under the mentorship of SU BizComm alum Maya Shipley Tyler, the alumni support coordinator at Cristo Rey, Desijana has been of terrific service gathering an alumni base as well as planning an alumni event for May. As a relatively new school with a small alumni base, Cristo Rey has begun a campaign to form a strong and steady alumni base, and Desijana is an important part of that effort.

Working at National Public Radio's Baltimore outlet, WYPR, is senior Brendan Reynold's dream. Under the supervision of the news director, Joel McCord, Brendan has been covering political news in the State House as well as a variety of other assignments. A recent coverage of news from Baltimore Clayworks also included on-air audio, as did a story on prescription drug prices. Brendan has learned how to put together his own audio tapes for the show, and is getting new assignments each week. As one of the co-editors of The Villager at Stevenson, Brendan's experience in news coverage has provided him with terrific starting experience.

Senior Kaitlin Kirkwood loves her dream internship with Discovery Communications in Silver Spring, Md., under the mentorship of Devin McDonough, the event planning manager for the mass media and entertainment company whose television channels include TLC, OWN, and Animal Planet, among others. Kaitlin is working with members of nearly every department in the Silver Spring branch as she compiles event information and schedules space for in-house events.
Senior Darien Baker signed up for an on-campus interview with Enterprise, and got the paid internship right away. Her work in the company's management trainee program has taught her every aspect of Enterprise's policies and procedures. Darien's strong interpersonal skills have particularly impressed her branch manager, Bryon Daniels, who has encouraged Darien to continue to learn as much as she can during her time with the company.
Senior Jake Miller is enjoying his internship with WorldStrides/Excel International Sports in Glenwood, Md. WorldStrides organizes student travel packages for schools, and recently acquired Excel International Sports, which creates and organizes sports tours for youth, high school, Olympic Development and NCAA teams in the United States and abroad. Jake's attentiveness to details, and his experience traveling abroad with Stevenson's soccer team, have helped him make this internship a success. He is working with his mentor, Jill Newman, who oversees operations and customer service.
