(Dee Menear photo) KINGFIELD — Through an internship designed to give the town’s website a facelift, Greg Siekman of Kingfield is giving back to the town he grew up in. Siekman, a 2014 graduate of Mt. Abram High School attended University of Maine Farmington for his first year of college before transferring to Penn State Online. He will begin studying Information Science and Technology in the fall but in the interim, he will spend time organizing and updating the Town of Kingfield website.

Siekman stated that it did not take him long to figure out what he wanted to do with his future. “I really thought front end development of websites is what I wanted to do. After my first day working with the town, I knew I made the right choice,” he said.

“There is a lot of stuff in different places on the site,” explained Siekman. “I plan on organizing the content so people can find what they are looking for easily. A lot of organizing needs to be done to make visits more streamlined.”

The website lists town officials, committees, organizations and services. Much of the information had not been updated in some time and Administrative Assistant Leanna Targett had been working on making the updates. Siekman has been working closely with Targett to ensure the final product is what the Town wants.

“I want to give the website a more modern feel. The website should be welcoming and visually appealing,” stated Siekman. This is the first website overhaul he has been involved with but is looking forward to the challenge.

Siekman will also be working on the Kingfield Bi- Centennial website.
