HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) Bruce Ross was once a field coordinator for the Michigan DNR downstate.
Since then, he’s left the profession to reach out to the urban youth.
“I remember when I started in college I was the only African American in my class,” said Ross. “There’s a real shortage of people actually going into natural resources.”
Ross and other organizers are trying to increase minority representation in natural resources.
Michigan Tech organizations helped raise $12,000 for these students to travel and stay in the U.P.
