Growing up just west of Wayzata, in Delano, I have fallen in love with the great things communities like this can accomplish through the hard work and dedication of neighbors, families and friends. I look forward to the challenges ahead of me and the new experiences that I can learn from!”Max is a political science major and a junior at the University of North Dakota.  Please stop in and introduce yourself, or say “Hi” on the street if you see him out and about.
