My name is Baelee Butts and I am the General Manager of the Viking Student Media at Valley City State University. I also run cross-country and track while attending VCSU.

In the 2015 summer I was an editor for the Beulah Beacon weekly newspaper in Beulah, North Dakota where I learned many professional and personal life lessons.I have worked on a student newspaper for Augustana University (formerly known as Augustana College) in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I have interned for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Sioux Falls.

I am a fifth year senior originally from Buffalo, South Dakota but I call Killdeer, North Dakota home now. My major consists of Professional Communications with a media concentration and a history minor.

My future goals are to either continue working in the media either for a newspaper, website or magazine but my ultimate dream job is working for a non-profit organization where I can help those in need.
