Stories of our alumni

Heidi Maygar, Communication Studies '93

Heidi is the Director of Corporate Giving for General Motors. Her UM-Flint experience has been valuable in her career: "One of my favorite classes was taught by Professor McGill, Business Communications. For several weeks during the semester we were challenged to run a manufacturing business and play assigned roles. Over those weeks we were given challenges such as production issues, a strike, a shift in the market. It seemed excessive and unrealistic that these events would all happen so close together but now upon reflections not that far from reality. I will always remember that class and the lessons learned by Professor McGill."

Caleb Holloway, Communication Studies '19

Caleb is a digital content producer for Mid-Michigan NOW (NBC25/FOX66/CW46). The well-rounded experience he received at UM-Flint prepared him for his career in journalism. "I think what I have valued most as a COM student at UM-Flint the wide range of classes I could take to have a fully rounded education in the field of communication. I was able to learn about business ethics, advertising, journalism, video editing and production, photography, communication theory and law. Information from all of these topics have helped me immensely in my career."

Heather Kale, Communication Studies '99

Heather is the general manager for the Ferris Wheel, a collaborative working and office space in Flint. A lifelong Flint-area resident, Heather says: "Staying connected with the network I established as a student at UM-Flint and growing up in Flint prepared me for my success. Also, connecting my studies to real life while working during college helped me capture understanding perspectives and why people communicate the way they do."
