Stacey M. Lane Grosh

Marketer/Writer/Author

As a client services manager at Ball State University, Stacey collaborates with departments and colleges to achieve strategic marketing and communication outcomes within the university's brand. She is committed to advancing Ball State's identity and mission.

Stacey developed and implemented the university's Fast Track processes to manage, design, and deliver routine print and interactive marketing projects quickly and provide a positive experience for the client. She's was also a production manager for nine award-winning university commercials and chronicles. She created print and web-based narratives that highlighted Ball State’s dynamic personalities and programs such as promoting campus visits from David Letterman, Oprah Winfrey, and Biz Stone; immersive learning opportunities; and the $200 million Ball State Bold capital campaign.

Prior to joining the University Marketing and Communications team in 2008, Stacey was a journalist for two daily newspapers, a weekly newspaper, and led a team to create and distribute a lifestyles magazine for Central Indiana. In a variety of roles from editor, assistant editor, and reporter, she covered Hurricane Katrina; local, state, and federal court hearings; fire and police actions, personality profiles; features; and wrote a weekly column about being a working mom.

Stacey's been awarded numerous first place state awards for her writing including on-going news coverage of a death penalty case where judges said: “Clearly the best in the category. Trial coverage at its best here. Vivid—though graphic—description of the crime grabs the reader while astute observation of the defendant’s behavior brings insight to the mindset of a killer.”

In 2003, she published a novel, "The Truth about Caroline," a ghost story for young teens. Stacey is currently pursuing her master's in emerging media, design, and development at Ball State. She earned her magazine journalism degree from Ball State in 1997. Her minors focused on creative writing and English.
