LakeVoice Semester Farewell

LakeVoice Crew We are sorry to say that this is our last publication as your LakeVoice newsroom staff. LakeVoice will be back next spring with a new team of reporters and editors. We wanted to let our readers know what we will be up to this summer, and feel free to comment and let us know what you’re doing as well! We have so enjoyed being a part of the Duluth community this semester. Peace out.

Jennifer Walch-- I’m moving up to Hibbing, Minn. after gradation to take on the challenge of the Iron Range Reporter for the Northland’s Newscenter. Taconite, Timber and Tourism,  here I come!

Kate Butler-- This summer I will be going to Vail, Colo. for the Teva Games to compete in a climbing competition and then back home to Apple Valley where I am a nanny. Every other weekend I will be back in Duluth to broadcast your Minnesota Twins from 610AM-KDAL (shameless plug...?)

Charlotte Crowley-- I’ll be spending my last few weeks in the States travelling- I have a weekend in Chicago and a week in San Francisco planned before I head back home to England where I have one year left of university. I’m hoping to spend most of my summer doing work experience at a few different publications and earning some money, as my year abroad has been expensive!

Emily Haavik-- I am volunteering with Mercy Ships this summer in Sierra Leone. I’ll be living on the Africa Mercy, which is a hospital-ship that gives free surgeries and medical care. My job will be cooking and cleaning and doing whatever they need. Goodbye, Duluth!

Sam Lefebvre-- This summer I will be homeless for two weeks until I move into my first off campus residence. Can’t wait for that! As for work, I will be finishing up my WDSE internship and I will also be the first face you see when you go out to eat at Bellisio’s in Canal Park.

Joe Haeg-- This summer I will either be working in a laboratory hoping to get bitten by a radioactive spider, or trying to find a job to pay for a trip to New York and a road trip to a yet undecided destination. Probably the latter.

Lisa Mattson-- I have no official plans for this summer and it feels great! After spending the last four years of my life constantly planning and meeting school obligations, I’m ecstatic to finally have some spare time on my hands. I’m mostly looking forward to rollerblading on the Lake Walk and swimming down at Park Point.

Katie Groves-- Oh, summer! I can’t wait to spend time in my boat at the family cabin on the weekends. During the week, I will be in Canal Park, knitting, and catching up on my social life. I might work as a Web Content Editor a bit too.

Tara Mortenson-- The day after my finals finish, I am off to Ireland! I will be taking an “Innovation in Ireland” course to finish up my degree. When I get home, I’ll be working at my favorite golf course while searching for a job relating to Marketing and/or Journalism. I plan on spending a lot of time at my cabin, being out on the lake, grilling, reading, going to bonfires.... doing all the wonderful things that come with summer!!

Scott Schmidley-- I am hoping to find work in the Twin Cities mopping floors, baking cakes or mining coal. If anyone knows any hook-ups, hit me up. I’m kind of serious.

Abby Schoenecker-- After many magical years at college, I will be spending my first summer out of school interning on campus with the director of public relations and marketing and working at the Thirsty Pagan in Superior. Come visit me!

David Cowardin-- For the first time in my life, my break from school will be longer than three months. Yes, I’m graduating. My plan for the summer is to work and spend as much time outside as possible. I will also be working on a documentary film and trying to start an outdoor news website for the Arrowhead region.

Lizz Downey-- While Winter keeps trying to make a comeback, I keep dreaming of Summer in TitleTown USA! Most of my time will be spent working at the UMD gym in the RSOP office and interning for the UMD athletic office. I will also stay busy with Summer classes and basking (hopefully) in the sun. Thanks so much for all of your support, we really appreciate it :)

Gram “Da-Hipster” Krause-Lyons-- I’ll be spending my last few weeks in the States travelling- I have a weekend in New York and a week in Scranton planned before I head back home to Great Britain where I have one year left of university. I’m hoping to spend most of my summer doing work experience at a few different publications and earning some money, as my year abroad has been expensive!

James “Scottie” Stitt-- I’ll be spending my last few weeks in the States travelling- I have a weekend in Cleveland and a week in Detroit planned before I head back home to Western England where I have one year left of university. I’m hoping to spend most of my summer doing work experience at a few different publications and earning some money, as my year abroad has been expensive!

Ethan “The Not-Team-Player” Walker-- I’ll be spending my last few weeks in the States travelling- I have a weekend in Seattle and a week in San Diego planned before I head back home to the U.K. where I have one year left of university. I’m hoping to spend most of my summer doing work experience at a few different publications and earning some money, as my year abroad has been expensive!

John Hatcher-- I will too spend much of my summer on my bicycle on the area’s gravel roads getting ready for a few ridiculously long bike races. In July, I will ride in a 100 mile bike race in the Blue Ridge Mountains called the Hot Doggett 100 (http://www.hotdoggett.mhc.edu/), which includes more than 9,600 feet of climbing. However, more importantly, I’ll just try to slow down a bit and spend time with my wonderful family, hanging out in our back yard and maybe trying to grow a few things in our garden.
