Dallas Steffen introduction


Hello readers!

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.
