2018 Staff Spotlight - Anna Becker

Anna Becker returns to North Star for summer #2. She's finishing up her senior year at St. Louis University with a degree in biology. Her year has been full of dental school interviews, planning fall orientation for the last time, working with a youth group, trying to stay focused through the senioritis, babysitting on the side, and starting her own little photography business.

She has a road trip through Ontario with her brother right before camp starts. After camp finishes, Anna will head back home to start dental school at the University of Minnesota! At camp Anna will be our Waterfront Director. She's also often seen with a camera in hand taking great pics all summer long.
