My name is Dallas Steffen and I am a staff intern for the Lake Country Echo and Pine River Journal this summer.
I graduated from Pine River-Backus High School in 2010. You might know my dad and his Trailside Birch Products store in Pequot Lakes.
I am currently attending Bemidji State University, entering my final year in the college in the pines. I remember job shadowing at the Pine River Journal at age 15 when Kelly Virden was the editor.
From a young age, I’ve loved to learn about something and share it with others. Now, I hope to do my best, and I am thankful to learn from the experienced and supportive staff in Pequot Lakes and the people of the area.
I do not know where the future will lead me. I know for the next two months, however, that I will grow and, hopefully, use my skills to bring the news to readers. Possibly, I’ll share what I have learned if I decide to teach others after graduating.
Until next time, you will see me around.
