Calvin University Chimes

Mark Peless
Mark is the online editor this year, which means that he has control of everything that goes on the Internet. Last year he was the sports editor, so his expertise with hard-hitting journalism will now transcend final scores and statistics. A junior writing and social work double major from Grand Rapids, Mark never strays too far from home, which will now be the Chimes office. Though sports will always occupy a small place in his heart, he is ready and excited for his new role and to blow the collective minds of Calvin’s students, alumni and staff. Mark is never one to shy in the face of great adversity, and tries his hardest to maintain a mental fortitude which oh so subtly infects the will of those around him. He is objectively a good guy, and should you ever cross his path, you will one day tell tales of him to your grandchildren.
