Communication News

Stevenson Biz Comm alum and women's volleyball star Samantha Perillo was one of 480 female student-athletes, including 180 from Division III, nominated for the 2015 NCAA Woman of the Year announced on June 19, according to gomustangsports.com. The Woman of the Year award honors graduating female student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in academics, athletics, service and leadership.

Perillo is a three-time AVCA Honorable Mention All-American and a three-time All-Commonwealth Conference First Team selection. In the 2014-15 season, she was named the Commonwealth Conference Player of the Year and Most Valuable Player of the Commonwealth Conference Volleyball Championship. She was also named ECAC South Defensive Player of the Year. Congratulations, Sam!

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!
