The Promethean Editorial Board

Kelly Peckholdt, Editor in Chief

Year: 2010
Majors: History/Education
Hometown: West Islip, NY


Welcome back! I am honored to be starting my first year as editor in chief of the Promethean, Siena’s student newspaper. I am a junior history education major, and I have been involved with the newspaper since my freshmen year. I began as a staff writer and worked my way up to editor in chief, and I love the behind the scenes things that are involved with producing the issues as well as writing. My involvement with the Promethean has provided me with many great opportunities so far, including meeting students, faculty, and administrators that I would not know otherwise.

On campus, I am also involved with Ambassadors, a club that gives tours to prospective students. That, too, has provided me with opportunities to meet many wonderful people and to share my experiences at Siena so far.

I am truly looking forward to another exciting year! If you have any questions or are looking to get involved, feel free to contact the Promethean staff at newspaper@siena.edu.

I transferred from Hudson Valley Community College and I am pursuing a Bachelors degree in accounting here at Siena.
