Congratulations to our own BizComm novelist, Stephanie Verni, who participated in this weekend's Baltimore Book Festival, shown here in the author's tent in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Stephanie's two novels, Beneath the Mimosa Tree and Baseball Girl, have given her significant prominence in the field of self-publishing. Thanks to Stephanie for sharing this great photo!
BizComm alum Gary Gray ('13) has begun a new job as the Recruitment Coordinator at Howard University. He works with new job candidates and hiring managers to manage the flow of candidates through the recruitment process, from scheduling interviews to bringing new employees on board. Gary's strong interpersonal communication skills and his engaging personality made him a lock for the position. In the photo, Gary's on the right during his internship at the U.S. Naval Academy in sports marketing, next to his supervisor, Chris Grosse. Congratulations on your new position, Gary!

Julia Tucker ('14) embraced the opportunity to sing with Josh Groban during his Sept. 14 concert at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.
Julia approached the stage with a note that mentioned her hopes of singing "The Prayer" with the singer. Groban agreed and the two sang a few verses together. Julia is still excited about the experience, which can be seen on YouTube. Congrats, Julia... what a great opportunity!
