Senior Jess Barley (right) has been accepted in the applied gerontology Master's program at Towson University beginning in May. Jess' interest in the field began with a BizComm internship in marketing at Brightview Senior Living in Bel Air, Maryland, where, among other tasks, she was given an opportunity to organize activities for the residents, and found she had a calling working directly with the seniors living there.
This chance changed her career path entirely. Jess is excited about the opportunity to learn more about aging, engagement, and senior living in the two-year degree program. Congratulations, Jess, for seeing that career architecture really can help you build for your future!
Rising senior Lanie Swanhart competed for Stevenson in the Outdoor Track and Field MAC Championships at Messiah College May 1-2 where she ran the new school record 2:23.26 for the 800 meter run, finishing in 4th place in the conference. Congratulations, Lanie! (Photo courtesy of Lanie Swanhart)
BizComm junior goalie Connor Skeen was named the game's MVP after Stevenson's men's lacrosse team was victorious over Messiah College in the MAC Commonwealth Conference championship game, 8-4. Skeen's 10 saves made the difference in the match, helped out by junior BizComm Pat Candon, who scored back-to-back goals just 38 seconds apart to give the Mustangs the lead at halftime, and Stevenson never looked back after that. Now, it's on to the NCAAs for the Mustangs!
It was a wonderful trip to Philadelphia for some BizComm students and faculty for the annual Eastern Communication Association convention, where they presented research material on panels, served as panel chairs, responded to student and faculty papers, attended sessions, met other students and colleagues, and planned for the 2016 convention to be held in Baltimore. In the photos above, senior Courtney Hastings (far left on the panel) spoke on a Lambda Pi Eta panel about Stevenson University's chapter; the four student attendees -- Lanie Swanhart, Megan McSwain, Peighton Perrone, and Courtney Hastings -- take a minute at the Undergraduate Scholars Conference luncheon to pose together; Courtney Hastings with Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, Stevenson's Lambda Pi Eta moderator; and finally all the SU attendees, left to right: junior Megan McSwain, Associate Professor Stephanie Verni, Associate Professor Deric Greene, senior Courtney Hastings, Associate Professor Leeanne Bell McManus, senior Peighton Perrone, junior Lanie Swanhart, and Associate Professor Chip Rouse.
