Jonah Leurquin: “Hey I am from St. Paul, Minnesota and a sophomore here at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. I am currently studying geological engineering with hopes to change the world one uncontaminated body of water at a time or maybe study volcanism. In the summer I plan to work a lot here at CEETE, but also spend sometime teaching swim lessons. For fun I want to check out some local trout creeks and make a feature film with some roommates and friends. We have no plan yet for the film but it will involve badly choreographed fight scenes. I am really excited to work here.”
