Senior Amanda Holland and junior Kendra Syphers made the front page of the Monadnock Ledger Transcript with their article on the installation of president Kim Mooney.

Holland got the opportunity to land the front page job when Dr. Kristen Nevious contacted her at 11 a.m. The  deadline was 3 p.m.

After the article was submitted and printed, Holland was asked about how she felt about seeing her work on the front page.

Holland said, “I wouldn’t be the writer I am today without all my professors, faculty, and staff within the Fitzwater center, I’ve been provided with so many opportunities and I want to thank everybody for helping me accomplish my work in these past three years.”

Syphers said, “After speaking with President Mooney I was instantly inspired. The interview showed me just how much she cares about the students here on campus.”

The two wrote about the installation and how it was a monumental moment for Franklin Pierce University. Mooney, who was a student here, served on the board of trustees, as provost, and as interim president, after Andrew Card left. Mooney is the sixth president of Franklin Pierce University as well as the first female president and past graduate turned president.
