Mike was in Houghton in June 2010, “Just for a visit and to find a good tree key.” We like visitors.
Ros Miller is a very memorable person. I had him for Natural Resource Use and Law. Ros could talk at length of great examples pertaining to the class, and keeping all of the students entertained. His natural ability to teach shined through him. I would definitely rank Ros as one of my top professors at Michigan Tech.

Scott and Tonya (Treichel) Albers 1998 welcomed a son, Jonah Scott on August 28, 2010. He and his big sister Nora, 4, are looking forward to spring so they can get outside and learn about the trees around their home.
Tonya is currently a stay-at-home mom, but is considering getting back into the field in the next few years if the right opportunity comes along.
The family lives in Medford Wisconsin. “Surrounded by the beautiful Chequamegon National Forest,” says Tonya.
