My name is Drew Smith and I am excited to join this summer through the Larry Oakes Scholarship at the University of Minnesota Duluth. I am going into my senior year at UMD, with a major in journalism with minors in photography and coaching. I graduated from Wayzata High School in 2018 where I worked on The Trojan Tribune, Yearbook and Wayzata Newsbreak. Up in Duluth, I work for the UMD women’s hockey team as a student assistant working with video, with previous roles in the athletic communications office and the University’s public relations office. I will be spending the summer with my family in Wayzata and I am excited to cover my hometown!
