Lucas is a senior majoring in both economics and finance from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Prior to this internship at WKSU, he interned at the Lake County Ohio Port and Economic Development Authority as a research intern. He currently serves as the opinion editor for The Kent Stater. Along the way, he’s also held several jobs within Kent State, from working as a tour guide to conducting research with professors in the economics department at the university.
