Hunter LaQua joined the VCDC team in January 2021 as the Events Coordinator.
Hunter was born and raised in Watertown, South Dakota, and recently relocated to Vermillion from Des Moines, Iowa. He is a USD alumni with B.S and an M.A. in Sports Management. He was a member of Phi Delta Theta on campus, where he enjoyed cultivating leadership and professional skills, networking, and giving back to the Vermillion community. During his time at Phi Delta Theta, he assisted in various philanthropic events hosted by the fraternity. His love for sports brought him to be a student manager for the USD Men’s Basketball team, and he also served as an Event Intern for the Vermillion Area Chamber & Development Company in spring 2019.
He was an Operations Intern with a minor league baseball team, the Fort Myers Mighty Mussels, in Fort Myers, Florida, before moving to Des Moines to do sales and merchandising for Johnson Brothers Liquor Distributor.
He enjoys hunting and fishing up by Watertown, or West River; pheasant is his favorite thing to hunt, but he dreams about one day getting his first buffalo.
