As the weather gets warmer in Madison, it becomes more evident the spring semester is rapidly progressing. The spring semester is an exciting time for the Evans Scholarship as chapters welcome their new, incoming members, but for every new member there is also a current senior whose time in their respective chapter is coming to an end. Our senior class has done great things at the university and in the community, and although they are graduating, they will forever be a part of the Evans Scholars family. Below is a look into what a few members of our senior class will be doing after graduation.
Drew Dretske is a senior from Berlin, Wisconsin, where he caddied at Mascoutin Golf Club. Drew will be graduating in 2018 with a bachelor's in pharmacy, and a doctorate in pharmacy in 2020. Drew has been working as a pharmacy technician at the UW-Hospital throughout the year and is planning on having an internship in 2018. During his time as an Evans Scholar, Drew spent time as the Alumni chair, and also helped the UW-Wisconsin Evans Scholars basketball team win three Inter-Chapter Basketball Tournaments.
Matt Tomczyk, from Waukesha, Wisconsin, caddied at Tuckaway Country Club. Matt will be graduating with a degree in finance, but is staying at school to complete his master's of science in applied security analysis. This summer Matt will be interning as an equity research analyst at Madison Investment Advisors. Matt has acquired much financial experience from his time at UW-Wisconsin, where he was president of the Capitol Management Club during his junior year.
Liz Curley is a senior, double-majoring in real estate and finance. Liz spent her time caddying at Ozaukee Country Club, which was not far from her hometown of Cedarburg, Wisconsin. After graduation, Liz will be moving to Minneapolis, where she has accepted a full time position in commercial real estate for U.S. Bank. Liz spent two years on the Evans Scholars Executive Board as the vice president of finance and has been an advocate for getting the women's field hockey team at UW-Madison, which she played on all four years, to be recognized as a club sport at the university.
