Business Communication News

BricknFire Pizza Co., established in 2014 by SU BizComm alum Megan Lanasa and Trey Kirby, is the winner of a regional competition for restaurant concepts held by the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards. BricknFire is a mobile brick-oven pizza operation housed at The Breadery, a bake shop owned by Megan's parents, and which often appears at area farmers' markets and special events.

As a result of the win, this fall, BricknFire will have a home inside the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards. According to a press release, "BricknFire was chosen by a committee of local restaurateurs, hotel owners, industry experts and food lovers. Marriott will work with BricknFire to suitably equip and build the space (up to a $50,000 investment), and lease terms will be negotiated after six months if the concept proves successful."  Here's a photo of Megan from her days as a Business Communication intern. Congratulations, Megan!

Looks like graduate school is the choice of several BizComms for the fall. Amy Sharfman will be among the initial cohort at Stevenson University's Master's program in Communication Studies that will begin this fall. Meanwhile, Amy is working this summer for Conference & Logistics Consultants, Inc. in the event management business. 

2015 alum Alex Parker will be attending Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., full time this fall for her master's degree in Sports Industry Management. Alex's internships with the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Wizards propelled her to the program at Georgetown.


Jess Barley, a May 2015 alum, has been accepted at Towson University for their Master's program in Applied Gerontology. Jess interned at several Brightview Senior Living facilities and was attracted to the career field. She hopes to combine her interest in events with gerontology studies.



Congratulations to Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus for the early publication of her sabbatical work in the journal Communication Education (Taylor & Francis), an important scholarly journal in the field of communication. The department of Business Communication values Dr. Bell McManus' work in the field of Communication Ethics.

Here's a photo of Shane Messick, a senior BizComm major, helping Wild Stang at the "Rock the Block" party at the Jewish Community Center in May. The day was filled lots of fun for our Owings Mills and Reisterstown neighbors, and members of the Stevenson community participated in many of the events. Thanks, Shane, for your enthusiasm!

BizComm grad Courtney Hastings continues her job as the Mar-Del Watermelon Queen, acting as a spokeswoman for the organization. Here she is seen reading to students at Rehoboth Beach (Delaware) Elementary School, about healthy eating habits. Courtney's speaking and marketing communication skills helped her earn the competitive title. She continues through the summer in her spokeswoman duties.
