Kaelyn graduated with a BS in Business Administration/Marketing and a minor in International Business. In July, Kaelyn will begin working at Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Marketing Rotational Program in Princeton, NJ, but not before taking a backpacking trip in Portugal with friends in June. “My favorite experience at TCNJ was studying abroad in Prague, Czech Republic my sophomore year.”
Kaelyn’s parents, Carolyn and Craig DiGiamarino, also attended TCNJ, both graduating in 1990. Carolyn double majored in Early Childhood Education and Psychology and Craig earned his BS in Business Administration/Finance. Both mentioned eating lunch at the Rat as one of their most memorable experiences at TCNJ and were equally stunned by the new, “beautiful” buildings that have since been built. “I’m happy to be able to share this important piece of our lives—college—and to have another tie that binds us together as a family,” said Craig.
Madellyn graduated with a BS in Business Administration/Marketing and a minor in Communication Studies. This summer, Madellyn will be traveling and playing lots of tennis, then later in the fall, she will be pursuing a career in sports management. When asked about her favorite memory at TCNJ, Madellyn cited being a NCAA all-American doubles player in the Fall
2016 semester and getting to compete at nationals in Arizona.
Madellyn’s father, Scott Stoner, graduated from TCNJ in 1979 with a BA in English. Scott is now director and attorney at Schatzman Baker PC in Princeton, NJ, specializing in litigation. But the legacy goes back even further than Scott: “Maddy’s graduation from TCNJ makes her a fourth generation graduate of the college. Her great grandmother Flora Scott graduated before World War I when it was called The Normal School. Both of her grandparents, Bill (1942) and Pat Stoner (1941), graduated TSC (Trenton Stat
e College) and served during World War II. Bill was the captain and played number one singles on the TSC tennis team. Pat was an education major and taught in the Trenton School System for about 20 years.” Both Bill and Scott Stoner are inductees in the Mercer County Tennis Hall of Fame!
