Thanks to our wonderful BizComm alums who made the last "Lunch Lessons" such a success! On March 27, 2015, we welcomed three alums back to talk about their careers to 10 interested students and the departmental faculty. Veida McCampbell, class of 2005, talked about her work as a producer on the popular TV show, "The Voice;" Steve Grossnickle, class of 2009, is now the head men's volleyball coach at Stevenson while working at Social Security Administration, and Katie Amos, class of 2011, is the development manager for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Maryland chapter. It was a wonderful event filled with stories and advice, and we were so proud to see our alums shine.
