Nick Kriston

Hi, my name is Nick Kriston and I’m the secretary for the Millersville AMS Chapter. I was raised about seven miles west south west of Pottsville, PA. Some weather phenomena that interest me the most include blizzards, Mountain Meteorology, and severe weather. As a child, I’d sit looking out the French doors of my house waiting for the first snowflakes of an incoming storm to fall or I’d nag my dad to take me for a drive up the mountain to see if a cold November rain had transitioned to a wet heavy snow. Some hobbies of mine away from Meteorology include fishing, hunting, and powerlifting. After college, I wish to find a job in any field of Meteorology.




Rhiannon Fleming

Hey there, my name is Rhiannon Fleming and I am a sophomore Meteorology major. I am excited to start this year as your AMS Historian. From my days as a Dauphin County 4-Her, I have experience as a club Historian and I am delighted to once again hold the office. Not only am I involved in AMS, I am part of the Space Weather subsect and a violist in the University orchestra. When I’m not cooped up in my room studying or watching science fiction television/movies, I’m in the woods taking pictures of nature or figuring out my next project to weave (on a loom) or sew. I hope to meet new faces and interact with current members of the AMS. Here’s to an exciting and new year!




Brian Rinaldi

Brian also spends his time working as a student technician with the University’s information technology department.
