Hey everyone, I am Drew Kimes and the only male member of the 2024 River Stewards cohort! I take pride in that, and we all consider myself “a part of the girls.” I truly have become so close with these girls and if it was not for this program, I would not have met my best friend, Cassie Rafter. So, I thank this program and cannot wait to create more bonds, friendships and memories with this group.
