The Keystone College Athletic Department is proud to announce the hiring of Emma Donnelly as assistant sports information director under the NCAA Division III Ethnic Minority & Women’s Internship Grant.
Donnelly arrives at Keystone after graduating from Southern New Hampshire University in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in communication and a concentration in sports management.
“I am very excited about this opportunity,” explained Donnelly. “I can’t wait to explore what Keystone College has to offer.”
While working in the Athletic Communications department for the Penmen, Donnelly recorded statistics and performed game day duties with soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, volleyball, basketball, and baseball. Also, she served as a public address announcer, camera operator, and social media manager.
Donnelly was awarded the 2020 Jim Atherton Award, which is given annually to an outstanding student worker in the SNHU athletic department. She was also a finalist for the SNHU Student Employee of the Year.
In addition to working at SNHU, Donnelly was an ambassador for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats minor league baseball team — the Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays — where she participated in marketing, promotions, ticket sales, operations, community relations, and guest services.
“I’m very excited to bring Emma on board,” explained Ryan Novitsky, sports information director. “Her positive attitude and energy coupled with her knowledge and experience of statistical software, social media, and game-day management made her stand out from the very qualified candidate pool.”
“Even though there won’t be any fall sports this semester, Emma’s creativity and background will help promote the Giants and how the student-athletes and coaches are managing this upcoming year.”
