Lucy Smith


Research Assistant

Just after graduating from high school in 2012, Lucy started her career at the Weikart Center as an intern and the valuable skills she learned in those four months inspired her to return as an intern for the next four summers. In May 2017, Lucy received her Bachelor of Arts in political science from U of M, and took on the role of research assistant for the Performance Information and Data Products team.


Lucy’s passion for positive youth development in out-of-school time settings extends past her work at the Weikart Center. For the past two years, Lucy has acted as head coach of a local high school mock trial team.
