Etched in Stone

Kelly Colanto

Kelly Colanto, a Sophomore, is in her second year of Journalism and currently works on designing the Etched in Stone website as well as being part of the Arts Beat on the paper covering art classes, music, woods, metals, and productions held by the school. Additionally, her favorite things to write about are reviews which showcase her opinion well and bring light-hearted fun to the paper.


Colanto moved to Fort Collins two years ago from Rocklin, California and since then, has spent a majority of her time dancing, enjoying time with her friends, and training her puppy. Colanto previously played soccer for eight years competitively and now is completely involved in the Fossil Ridge Dance Team. In her free time, she loves to paddle board, watch horror or comedy movies, and travel when she has the chance. She listens to music often, and some of her favorite artists are Gus Dapperton, Tyler, the Creator, and Cuco.


Her family consists of her mom, dad, her older sister, who goes to UNC Greeley, an older brother, who goes to CU Boulder, and two dogs - a Yellow Labrador and a Mini Australian Shepard. Colanto says she really loved spending time with her grandmother and extended family in Arizona when she was younger and now cherishes every moment when she goes back to visit. She has an interest in going to college at San Diego State University, with hopes of studying and pursuing a business career in the future. Once she is older and more successful she hopes to spend more time traveling around the world and visiting her life-long favorite locations.
