Connelly is returning to his role as Ad & Business manager.

Len Strazewski, faculty adviser for The Chronicle, said the new team’s experience rising through the ranks at the newspaper has helped them become familiar with the college’s operations and the production of the paper.

“The new management team reflects the best traditions of The Chronicle,” he said. “We are positioned perfectly for another award-winning year.”

Strazewski and The Chronicle’s Assistant Faculty Adviser Stephanie Goldberg, General Manager of Student Publications Christopher Richert, Communication Department Chair Suzanne McBride interviewed candidates along with members of the previous management team.

“I am honored to work with these amazing students who lend their talents to The Chronicle,” Richert said, echoing Strazewski’s sentiment about the upcoming year being “positioned for greatness.”
