As the father of an alum, and the son of a long-time employee, I'm proud to work with the amazing team in the Office of Communications. After serving as the Photo Editor of the Galesburg Register-Mail for 8+ years, I'm excited to capture life at Knox, and share the accomplishments of our students and campus community!

Director of Digital Initiatives

I have been at Knox College in the Office of Communications since 2019. Knox has always been part of my life due to the many years my mother has worked here, and I am very excited to be part of such a wonderful team.

Ami Jontz

Senior Designer

I have close to 25 years of experience as a graphic designer, working at Knox since 2000. I like the variety of projects that working at a college offers. I mean, who wouldn't love starting their day designing a magazine layout and ending it by helping piece together a new display for the athletic building?! Even though I'm a creative type, I'm a computer geek at heart and find it very rewarding when I can figure out solutions to technical problems with software and layouts. (I do have to admit that Google is my best friend.)

I consider myself lucky that I get to work with a group of such fun and creative people.

Paige McKinney

Junior Graphic Designer

I'm a graphic designer and illustrator with 10 years of experience and am so happy to have joined the awesome Communications team at Knox! In my career I've worked for large corporations and small businesses in the consumer goods and apparel industry, but the projects that bring me the most joy are things that make a difference for everyday people. I hope I can bring the joy and passion I have for my craft to the students and faculty at Knox to make their stay on campus just a bit brighter!

Mitch Prentice ’17

College Writer/Editor

I have worked as a journalist for over 5 years since graduating from Knox in 2017. During my career, I've written stories about a range of topics, from small businesses opening their first location to tragic house fires to drama at City Hall. Most of all, I enjoy writing personal stories about people from a range of backgrounds. Telling stories is what I do best, and the Knox community has many to tell.

Now, I write communication pieces for my alma mater and couldn't be more excited to give back to the college that helped me start my career.


Dakota Pruemer

Video Content Creator and Storyteller

I started my position at Knox in September of 2021. My focus is to create engaging, high production video content for the College. Being able to tell the stories of various faculty, staff, alumni, and current students is a highlight of this position for me. I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a Master of Arts and Bachelor of Arts. I am fortunate to have a career in two areas I love—video production and higher education.
